DROP IN FESTIVAL BADGE WORKSHOP
What is a festival without festival badges?
We invite you to join us in creating festival badges. Badges will be drawn on circular templates, and then a special badge machine will come to the rescue. With a bit of muscle action, it will turn circular drawings into wearable badges. We will play with letters and dance motifs, and you can make a badge for yourself or a piece more for other festival friends.
The entrance for the workshop is free, and the registration for the workshop is not required, so you can join us anytime from 11 to 19 h.
This workshop was realized in cooperation with the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art.

Juggling is a creative, but also a therapeutic skill, with many benefits for those who practice it: developing creativity, coordination, balance, concentration, rhythm, sense of space, stage presence, and all is based on play. In the workshop, we will use the “usual” juggling props such as balls, Chinese plate spinners, diabolo, rings, poi, but also the “unusual” ones like hats. The recommended age for children is from 7 years.
Nikola Dabac and Zoran Vukić have been involved in acting and music for most of their working lives. For many years they have been collaborating with each other through various projects. In the Association Antuntun they have joint plays Between Extremes (2011) and The Story That Holds Up (2014) which they successfully perform in theaters, festivals and various events, but also in schools and kindergartens. By the way, these two are also known as clown doctors. They perform on the street, in hospitals where they make little patients laugh, and sometimes also in the theatre. We suspect that they are not only dealing with dispelling boredom, but also dispelling worries and sadness.

The rola bola is a classic circus discipline of maintaining balance on the cylinder and the board. The rola bola encourages the development of the vestibular apparatus, which is responsible for balance. At the workshop we will do various balancing exercises that are different from everyday movements. In addition, the rolla bola is a fun activity that encourages coordination on both sides of the body, improves muscle tone and the ability to keep the body in positions that defy gravity, body control and general fitness.
Emilio Alcantara is a circus artist specializing in the Rola Bola discipline. Born in Caracas, Venezuela. His interest in the performing arts began in 2006. At this time he studied theater and contemporary dance at a regionally renowned arts school in Valencia, Venezuela.
