Today, when each of us perceives the idea of a workers’ society built on social solidarity as if seen through a mist of nostalgia, in the time when the emphatic self which finds its integrity in the spirit of togetherness gets embodied in emoticons, a simple allusion to the change of a political and social system we live in leads to a belief that the end of the world is far more easily conceivable than the end of capitalism. Whether we speak of the consequences of disappointed political expectations in all the revolutions, which led only to the change of the leading structures and deepened the gap between the social classes, or of a general transformation of the modern-day interpersonal love into a negotiation between business partners, dictated by the laws of the market, a question persists: where is the hope? Who is in charge of it today? Revolutionary Room examines the possibility of an essential (inner, moral, personal and rational) reformation of an individual rushing to the narcissistic ideology of the new age, but also of the essential reformation of the social order.

Founded in 2009, Bitef Dance Company is the first contemporary dance company in Serbia attached to a cultural institution, which offers an opportunity to the audience to follow high-quality dance theatre throughout the theatre season. In the course of the ten years of its existence, Bitef Dance Company has had thirty-two dance productions and over a hundred and fifty guest performances in Serbia and abroad (Slovenia, Croatia, Montenegro, Poland, Sweden, Hungary, Romania, Japan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia…). The company has cooperated with the renowned national and international choreographers, such as Guy Weizman, Roni Haver, Jasmin Vardimon, Isidora Stanišić, Edward Clug, Constanza Macras, Matjaž Farič, Dalija Aćin, Zoran Marković, Maša Kolar, Branko Potočan, Leo Mujić, Dunja Jocic… The performances The Scents of Cinnamon, Othello, Divine Comedy, Carmen in IV Rounds, Alpha Boys, Yesterday, Don Juan, Birds… have all contributed to the creation of a new audience which follows dance repertory, with a new dance scene for children, that has been opened with the aim to bring the art of dance closer to the youngest audience.
