For many years, and mostly during my three years of studies at the Interuniversity Center for Dance, Berlin, I didn’t create pieces for stage. It wasn’t of any ideological reasons, I was just busy with concepts that required other forms of presentation. My interest was lying in forms like happenings, durational performances, installations, video and performance art. But as a part of entering this realm, I started to realize the differences in conditions, visibility and resources that performance art and installation works receive, when they are placed in the same event next to stage performances. It seemed that the situation was mostly in favor of the latter. I became more and more sensitive to this inequality and had the urge to look deeper into the relationship between artworks on stage and artworks that use other constellations and if there is a hierarchy inside this relationship.
