The playground

© Nikola Milatovic

This is the story of a group of people who meet up every evening at nightfall in what could be a children’s playground - a quiet place where they can give free rein to their desires. They come together to dance, sing, dream, intertwine and love one another. Their desire to be together creates a natural beat, leading to dancing and choir music.

This series of embraces, songs and movements spreads the beat, awakening emotions that resonate with the audience. The Playground attempts to identify how individuals create a community and tries to determine each person’s private and fragile journey to understanding others. The Playground questions the role of spectators, confronting them with the responsibility of whether or not they wish to join the community.
