The performance incorporates different art forms (contemporary dance, visual art and music) in order to reveal the past and nowadays mysteries of the Mausoleum in the Archaeological Park Viminacium.

“ChronoRAY” is a symbolic interplay between time and enlightenment. The word “chrono” signifies the continuum of time, narrative and exploration of temporal themes within the performance. Meanwhile, “RAY” evokes imagery of light, energy, and revelation, implying an illumination of the past, present, and future.

The fusion of these two concepts in “ChronoRAY” offers a journey through time, over inner and outer borders that divide but at the same time is a prerequisite to connect. The video mapping serves as a guide, uncovering hidden truths, memories, and possibilities. The performance raises questions about the need to connect as eternal part of human social existence, understanding and meaning, and the cyclical nature of time.

The performance is an artistic collaboration between Bulgarian Derida artistic team, local Serbian musicians and minority group from Pozarevac region.

Overall, “ChronoRAY” offers a profound and thought-provoking experience, inviting audiences to embark on a transformative exploration of temporal and existential themes.
