This year at Montreal's Festival Transamerique, Croatian choreographer and performer, Matija Ferlin will be presenting two of his pieces from the Sad Sam series: Sad Sam Lucky (2012) and Sad Sam Almost 6 (2009).
A young artist, Ferlin, born in 1982, has already created four short films and five exhibits. His training is interdisciplinary, spanning both performance and visual arts and his enchantingly personal solo shows have become known for, not only their awe-striking physical presentations but also their narrative structures.
As playwrights, we often use too many words to tell a story and so I love physical artists who teach us the value of body language. Ferlin's pieces tell us tidbits from his life story. Please check out this fascinating interview with the artist to learn more about his creative process and product.
