The exhibition Staying here with you – moving was opened on October 10 at Cinema Balkan, in front of over 600 visitors. The opening was followed by six performances that took place simultaneously at different levels that were for the first time all in use revealing the beauty of the 19th century building. Katja Schenker presented with the performance Sehnen/Yearning, while Branko Miliskovic intrigued the audience with a powerful rendition of THE SONG FROM THE GRAVE [Stabat Mater] ONE MAN OPERA. For the first time in front of the Belgrade audience, the Les Reines Prochaines concert (the next Queens) showed all the temperament and energy of performers Muda Mathis, Sus Zwick, and Franzi Madorin. Samuel Herzog invited the audience in front of his booth to visit his island of Lemus – an imaginary island – which required a visa. Sanja Latinović, Milica Bakmaz, and Marco Nektan reinterpreted a performance by Alexandra Meyer called Vinyl. Dejan Klincov, in his bed, over which his 1999 video works were presented, included visitors in his memory space and allowed the audience to get closer and intimately engage in his work through conversation or rest.
