Several activists and civilians have been facing legal prosecution and imprisonment for their acts of solidarity in defense of the fundamental human rights worldwide.
In the frame of the interdisciplinary project The Performing Solidarity Project in collaboration and co-production with INFLUX - Network for Dance, Theatre and Performance, a team of four artists has been engaging in the development of a performance practice. The resulting artwork is a combination of artistic responses to the aforementioned topic woven together by a contemplative performance practice, exhibited in diverse rooms.
Tomaž Simatović is a multifaceted performance artist, dancer, and choreographer, who works interdisciplinary on soloist and collaborative performance practices. In 2016 he began developing an interest in participatory art. He initiated and developed a series of (collaborative) performance projects (The Way You Touched Me Tonight, Back to the Beautiful, Suddenly the floor was not there, Extraordinarily Intolerable), which have been growing into the body of work The Perfoming Solidarity Project. For this reason he established a working group of artists: Bandi Meszerics, Nayana Keshava Bhat and Claudia Heu. Extraordinarily Intolerable/The Perfoming Solidarity Project is sheltered by INFLUX - Network for Dance, Theater and Performance, and all the audiences that have supported this project.
