The OCC invites you to a Press Conference regarding the festival 'Transitions 1. Balkans' on Monday 10 February at 12:00.

6 Feb 2014
For nine days (5-16 March 2014), artists from Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia, Montenegro, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Bulgaria, Rumania and Moldova who have shaken up the international scene in recent years with their radical forms, poetic power and intensely politicized art will transform the OCC into an open platform for artistic dialogue and critical thinking, banishing our current Western stereotypes and revealing the unseen side of the Balkans. Active on the cutting edge between performance, dance, theatre, the visual arts and music, the artists at the Balkan festival were born and raised in the years of Real Socialism, witnessed the violence and chaos of the post-Communist period, and are now living through the derailment of the neo-liberal economic model. The eclectic festival is articulated around issues which acquire especial gravity in dark times: identity crisis, nationalism, immigration and the pressing need to create a powerful and effective civil society.
