"TRULY a meditation on the body. This work is a strongly somatic experience for all." - The MercuryA Domino Project presented by Phillip Adams BalletLab
'Denuded' is about breathing, the body and most importantly, constant contact with the audience. The confrontation of the naked body and the gaze is the work's driving force. Isaković examines the physicality of this subject, separate from the source of its meaning, in a solo transformation ritual. Here, the visible becomes a site for investigating the invisible through the transformation of physicality guided by breath. 'Denuded' denotes anything not fitting our framework of rationality and opens up spaces to be filled with the irrationality we all carry within us.
Bruno Isaković is a performer, choreographer and teacher living in Zagreb, Croatia. He graduated with a degree in contemporary dance from Amsterdam School of the Arts in 2009. From 2011 - 2015 he was a member of Contemporary Dance Studio, a company based in Zagreb. He is Artistic Director of Sounded Bodies Festival happening annually in the autumn season in Zagreb, Croatia. While working with different choreographers, Isaković creates his own performances and teaches dance workshops. He has received various scholarships, as well as Jury Award and Best Solo Dance at Solo Dance International Festival in Budapest and Croatian National Award 2016 as a best choreographer for 'Denuded' (ensemble version). His solo 'Denuded' (2013) has been performed across 5 different continents in venues in New York, Tokyo, London, Sao Paulo and Hobart. This led him to create an ensemble version of the work.
