| Synopsis

VERONIKA is an interactive solo dance performance that focuses on the feeling of being left alone. It deals with the idea of the need to keep things, people and situations the way they are, or bring them back to their original state after they got shifted or broken. The need to replace or bring back the missing part or the missing person is shown through the engagement and support of the audience. The solo thus becomes a duo with the help of the audience. The performance was choreographed by Johannes Randolf and Jerca Rožnik Novak, who also dances on stage.
