Jump Up, Angels is a celebration of the beauty and strength of body in movement, an homage to the creativity of a dancing body and its capability to establish a direct communication between instict and movement. Drawing on the rich heritage of Croatian folk dances and songs, the author and choreographer creates a unique but highly communicative movement by combining folk dance elements and a very personal contemporary dance vocabulary. This show is not a look into the past, but a review of something long existing and its bringing into the contemporary theatre context. The epic atmosphere of ritual movement and almost mythical songs gives this piece a hypnotizing intensity. The minimalist music based on folk motifs and performed on simple, almost primitive instruments, the songs sung alive by the dancers and the expressiveness of bodies in movement make Jump Up, Angels a unique theatrical experience.
