With its initial desire to articulate contemporary dance history in Eastern Europe, the collection Parallel Slalom steps directly into the moment of the encounter between history and the present, the East and the West, and it touches upon numerous ideological categories that appear in these encounters as a consequence of the hierarchical matrix of the western narrative. It explores dance in its emancipatory and transformative potential as a constant articulation and re-articulation; it emphasizes the potentiality of heterogeneity of local practices, contexts, principles and criteria; and it directs mental efforts towards the possibilities of creating one's own, specific and potentially rebellious or innovative forms of life and work.
