It matters not where a hostage of one’s own fear is. There is no exit from his cell, no way out of his predicament. The fear of who we are makes us always carry our cell along. Hence, the only world we are left with is that of our imagination about the “what if”.

In Arab world the word habibi is largely used to refer to men, meaning darling or my beloved. Dance production Habibi problem by Austrian choreographer Helene Weinzierl was inspired by true story of two Iranian gay refugees, their issue with love and the unacceptability of Otherness. Whilst one of them was sentenced and executed in his homeland for being who he was, the other one had to face deportation from his European exile.

Slovak choreographer Yuri Korec, co-auythor and performer of the original version of the title, presents a remake dance performance HABIBI 2196-18 set in the context of Otherness in our region.

YURI KOREC throughout his presence as dancer and choreographer in pan-European space, he collaborated with a range of lauded dance artists, inter alia Helene Weinzierl (AT), Rafaele Giovanolla (DE), Stephanie Thiersch and Stephanie Schober (UK). He is co-author of internationally acclaimed dance films, Day (Deň, 2004), Darkroom (2008) and VoiceS (2010). Currently he is an academic at the Academy of Performing Arts in Bratislava. He presents his works through the company Yuri Korec & Co. His recent works include the duet d-BODY-m (2017) with a track record of a successful Slovak and international tour. Yuri is also the first therapist to use the Rolfing somatic method of structural integration in Slovakia. He applied his doctoral research in corporality and performance in the solo Non-solo (Nesólo, 2018). His latest piece, Habibi 2196-18 is a remake of the title Habibi Problem (2008, Cielaroque/Helene Weinzierl).

LUKÁŠ ZAHY tried, as dancer, a whole array of fields – ballroom dance, latino, jazz, ballet, the Martha Graham and José Limon techniques, vogue. Yet he finds contemporary dance and performance to lend his the greatest lkiberty and space for self-expression. He currently studies at the Academy of Performign arts. Lukáš performs anywhere, without stopping or shame. All he needs is an appropriate venue, bizarre idea and choreography is born! He likes Popart, Dada, applause, Modernism, and humour. His current collaboration with Yuri Korec, however, give him an opportunity to experience more serious aspects of performance.
