Dancer, choreographer and performer of Slovenian origin, Mala Kline studied art and philosophy in Ljubljana, Amsterdam and New York and is one of the most interesting artistic figures in the Balkan region. Her work seeks the emotional representation of inner worlds and an authentic and disruptive relationship between performer and audience.
EDEN is not a paradise lost, it is not a place of peace and bliss. EDEN is a place of healing with a razor blade, an elsewhere in which to find oneself, awake and open, exposed to the beauty and cruelty of events. Mala Kline dances, sings, acts; she interprets multiple figures, animals, emotions with a rare strength, an original and entirely personal ability to convey what she defines as “the human essence” with authenticity, sincerity and brilliant irony.
In this second edition, PLAY-K(ei) looks at Europe and gives life to PLAY-Europe, a special journey within the season dedicated this year entirely to the Balkans and Croatia’s entry into the EU.
