The Workshop is open for dance and theater amateurs and professional enthusiasts over 18 years of age (dancers, actors, performers etc.)

Combining dance, theater and education, Staša Zurovac brings to the Ulysses Theater Summer Festival 2019 a project that has been developed in Linz, Austria already for a six months.
In Croatian Center Linz, this choreographer gathered together dance and theater amateur enthusiasts for the emergence of the dance-theater piece under the title name Tanzstunden für Erwachsene und Fortgeschrittene or Dancing Lessons for the Advanced in Age.
Collaboration of the Ulysses Theater, Croatian Center Linz and Staša Zurovac will present this work to the audience as one created above some of the motifs of the same titled novel by famous Czech writer Bohumil Hrabal. Creation will not follow plot story line of the Novel completely and literally, but it will serve as an inspiration for some segments of the piece.
The Author’s team and performers rely on the essence of love for life that novel template delivers, even in the title itself.
Author’s imagination of Art is a base for the Theater available to everyone within its highest ethical and human code. It is a live encounter of those whose imagination and mutual love live in the same space and where the encounter itself turns audience, performers, space and moment into one world.
Such an intention could be called as an natural selection of space and time for choosing true lovers, or in this form, encounter of people, nature, author, amateurs and professionals in the creative process.
The Workshop will end up with two terms of Summer Intensive Dance-Theater Workshop in purpose to create Guest Performance piece for the Ulysses Theater Summer Festival 2019, which is placed on Brijuni Islands in Croatia. It is an open air theater festival which exists already for 18 successful years and it is highly internationally recognized.
