Downtown Variety: Serbia Edition
Bringing La MaMa's 1960s café aesthetic to a virtual platform that links performers and audiences in real time across distance
La MaMa and CultureHub presented Downtown Variety: Serbia Edition livestreamed on the global, commons-based peer produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv on Friday 19 February 2020 at 1 p.m. PST (San Francisco, UTC -8) / 3 p.m. CST (Chicago, UTC -6) / 4 p.m. EST (New York, UTC -5).
La MaMa and CultureHub team up with artists in Serbia to create a special edition of Downtown Variety, an online live performance series that features short acts of dance, music, theater, new media, comedy, A/V performance, and more. Downtown Variety brings La MaMa's 1960s café aesthetic to a virtual platform that links performers and audiences in real time across distance.
Downtown Variety: Serbia Edition explores resilience as a distinct characteristic of the art scene in this turbulent socio–cultural time; resilience against social apathy, against visible and invisible enemies, against totalitarianism, against marketplace art, against capitalism, against disconnection. In the spirit of La MaMa, contemporary artists will open new spaces of freedom, experiment and create new connections and meeting points.
Curated by Eho animato, Downtown Variety: Serbia Edition presents artists working in the fields of A/V performance, performing arts, drag performance, film, sound art, puppetry, digital arts etc.
Artists for this edition include: Ivana Ivković, Doplgenger, Björnsonova & Milica Stefanović, Jovana Ivanac & Dobrivoje Milijanović, Aleksandar Bulajić, Ana Popović, Isidora Pejović Blagojević, Maja Maksimović & Sunčica Pasuljević Kandić, Miklós Barna-Lipkovski, Markiza de Sada, Sandra Nikač, and Eho animato collective.
