The project Žalike2030 is a part of the project series Alpen.Mythen.Frauen developed with the aim to create a thematic frame for contemporary dance art as a community practice within the current global endeavors toward sustainable development, mainly focusing on gender roles and environmental issues inspired by Alpine Mythology for the development of creative expressions in time.
Mythology is an important intangible shared cultural heritage among European countries and globally. It consists of stories of people, their traditions, rituals, beliefs, and natural landscapes. The telling of myths is one of the earliest structured uses of dances. Before the production of written languages, dance was one of the methods of passing these stories from generation to generation.
In the current discourses on sustainability, mythology offers a wide range of motives for art projects. The project Alpen.Mythen.Frauen connects mythology from Alpine regions in Slovenia, Austria, and the Swiss. The project participants are taking the symbolical role of the wise women from the Alpine region known as “Salige”by creating their artworks.
The final production is envisioned to be composed in 2022.
Due to the C-19 pandemic, the team has developed a virtual part of the project C-19 Zalike2020 #sustainable me. Best practices from this project part have been connected into a virtual format for wider dissemination and educational sessions for cross-generational practice: Zalike e-Sessions
