Croatian choreographers/dancers Mia Zalukar and Bruno Isaković have collaborated on Kill B., a dance performance inspired by Quentin Tarantino’s 2003 cult movie Kill Bill. Zalukar and Isaković create a performative analysis of their own long-term professional relationship, questioning the hierarchical structures inside the theatre-making process and the power dynamic between the two, at least in theory, equal partners.
Content Advisory: This performance contains strobe lights, haze, loud music, and brief violence.
