A versatile artist: contemporary dance, new theatre, performance
Nataša Živković (1981), after finishing secondary ballet school in Ljubljana, dedicated herself to contemporary dance and collaborated with a number of choreographers. Today she is a self-employed dancer, actor, choreographer and mentor.
Živković has participated in Via Negativa projects since 2006 and in numerous projects by Emanat. Since 2014 she has co-created the technoburlesque Image Snatchers. She has also been involved with the processual project No!Training Lab, led by choreographer Katja Legin.
Her debut as an author, First Love’s Second Chance (City of Women, 2009), and her dance and theatre achievements led to her being awarded the Golden Bird Award in 2009. Her most recent written work, For Father’s Sake (Via Negativa/City of Women, 2014) is dedicated to her father.
In 2014/2015 she was employed at Zavod Bunker as a movement and artistic mentor collaborating with various primary schools across Slovenia.
In 2016 she co-authored and performed in If You’re Happy (Bunker), In the Back of Time (Meta Grgurevič/Urša Vidic; Ljubljana Puppet Theatre) and Just in appearance sometimes as everyone else (Kaja Lorenci; Emanat).
She is currently developing a new work with choreographer/musician Irena Tomažin.
