Ana Kržišnik Blažica shared her inspiring words: "Our body, which feels and experiences everything, definitely cannot experience distance from reality. With it, we overcome the distances between each other, we experience reality, we feel reality. The body is always here and now. And dance is an extreme form of feeling the body, overcoming the distance between each other and from oneself."

The premiere of "DISTANCE" will open the Gorizia dance festival Visavì, organized by the association Artisti Associati from Gorizia, Italy.

The dance performance "Distance" is co-financed by GO 2025 Nova Gorica · Gorizia, Ministry of Culture R Slovenia and Municipality of Nova Gorica and it’s showcasing the unity and borderlessness of the arts.     Photo credits: Aljoša Kravanja
