HERR MILISKOVIC (Life of an Intruder)

Belgrade born visual and performance artist of younger generation, had a premiere on the 16 January 2014 of his new production entitled HERR MILISKOVIC (Life of an Intruder) at Kampnagel theatre in Hamburg. This piece symbolises two entities of his own body, asking personal as well as widely notorious social questions. While observing political connotations of The Body, Milisković is intending that, by dividing his own-self in two entities, achieve some other forms of hybridity, establishing a bizarre fusion between man and women, animal and machine. In this production, Miliskovic collaborates with german performer and theatre director Helen Schröder who will be the other side of Miliskovic, while Branko Miliskovic himself represents his own irrational, androgenic, queer, promiscuous and socially intolerable body. HERR MILISKOVIC is ageless, genderless with unspecified socio-political declaration, leaving somewhere in-between, somewhere on the way, but basically levitating. Performance “Herr Miliskovic” contains elements of contemporary choreography, dans, hardcore performance, cabaret and opera. Main premise is particular relation, co-operation as well as conflicts between two different entities of Branko Miliskovic, constant socio-political argues and finally the question “Who has committed Genocide?” Visually and structurally “Herr Miliskovic” is not historical documentary theatre piece nor pamphlet theatre but rather more surreal nightmare of dreamlike collages using special language of symbols, associations often without any logical order. Situations in this piece are intertwining each other, often dislocated occasionally reappearing, mainly following a philosophy of David Lynch by whom many every day situations are often senseless and irrational and therefore very justified. Vocal parts in HERR MILISKOVIC are very protruding. Singing or speaking out certain phrases goes repetitively, very often in full voice up to ten minutes in length without break, causing a hypnotic effect of mantra. As Kampnagel has stated in it´s program jan-feb 2014, in his his gracefully controversial performances, Miliskovic captures the audience with combination of his ‘’specific charm’’ and ‘’disarming presence’’.  (Mannheimer Morgen , July 2013) ..

HERR  MILISKOVIC

Leben eines Eindringlings (UA)

Branko Miliskovic, Hamburg

In einer choreografierten Recherchereise dekonstruiert Herr MILISKOVIC – Leben eines Eindringlings die Grenzen des menschlichen Körpers und erschafft dabei ein neues, unbekanntes Wesen. Diese zwitterartig und alterslos anmutende Doppel-Figur ist mehr Hybrid als singulärer Körper. Zwischen Mensch, Tier, Maschine angesiedelt verweigert HERR MILISKOVIC jegliche Form der Zuschreibung und proklamiert damit das politische Gehalt des Körpers. Binäre und vermeintlich eindeutige Zuordnungen à la Mann-Frau, jung-alt oder Mensch-Tier werden somit bewusst ad absurdum geführt. Branko Miliskovic – ursprünglich aus der Bildenden Kunst kommend – hat sich inzwischen zur Performance emanzipiert und auf Kampnagel eine künstlerische Heimat gefunden: In seinen verstörend-anmutigen Arbeiten zieht er die Zuschauer mit einer Mischung aus »entwaffnender Präsenz« <z>Mannheimer Morgen</z>  und Charme in seinen Bann.
