BADco. (HR)
BADco. (Pravdan Devlahović, Ivana Ivković, Ana Kreitmeyer, Tomislav Medak, Goran Sergej Pristaš, Nikolina Pristaš and Zrinka Užbinec) is a Zagreb-based collaborative performance group. It was founded in 2000 while some of the authors were working together on the Confessions project in Theatre & TD. It was founded as a non-profit organization to produce collaborative performance work by Pravdan Devlahović, Tomislav Medak, Goran Sergej Pristaš, Nikolina Pristaš and Ivana Sajko.
The artistic work of BADco. is not so much marked by the choice of subject matter as it is by the production of various problematic aspects of working in/as collaboration, i.e. through specific ways of self-organization of the authors involved in a particular project during the process of work. Authors see their performances as performance machines which can enter various referential contexts such as social, political, intimate, dance and artistic contexts in general. Instead of thematic naming, which stands closer to the traditional ideas of theatre, the group prefers to think in terms of eventuality. Some key words for our thematic interest are: vitalism, virus material, collective, flesh vs. body, strategies of observing, etc. So far the group has produced the following performances: “Man.Chair“ (2000), “2tri4“ (2001), “Diderot's Nephew or Blood is Thicker than Water“ (2001), “Solo Me“ (2002), “RibCage“ (2002), “Walk This Way“ (2003), “Mass“ (for Election Day Silence) (2003), “Deleted Messages“ (2004), “Fleshdance“ (2004), “memories are made of this... performance notes“ (2006), “Gravidation“ (2006).
