Utterly reduced movability and tension of a physical body set in an abandoned factory plant. In an empty machineless space a human body is attuned to the working rhythm of archaic pulsation. Slow and hyper-controlled movements are trying to maintain cohesion, but the decay of upper layers demonstrates the unstoppable process of dematerialisation. Body positions point to the collective memory of physical structure of things disappearing in the intense cold of calculus. The traumatic position of corporeality is denuded in a circular, unstoppable motion towards a data conversion of the material world. Most of the sound segment in the film was the result of interventions on a sound recording of breathing during the performance without audience's presence. (Vladislav Knevević)


The film “End Cycle” is a collaboration with dancer Takao Kawaguchi and filmmaker Vladislav Knezevic. Their cooperation was initiated in 2016 during Takao's residency in Zagreb, Croatia. Takao Kawaguchi has been researching in recent years the ways in which intensity and speed of movement can influence the very act of watching and witnessing a performance. Takao had a presentation of “Slow Body “in 2016, then “untitled“ in 2017, an extension of Slow Body” collaborated with Ines Kesić, VJ-ing using video images by Vladislav Knezevic.

The film End Cycle and the performance “untitled“ based on “Slow Body” has influenced each other for this transformation between artistic formats of live performance and film. This is an experimental film that is connecting traditional movement, body image and experimental music in a post-apocalyptic landscape of the abandoned factory Gredelj in Zagreb. Gredelj used to be part of a factory of railway carriages founded in 1894 in Croatia that has been abandoned as a production site.
