So far, the choreographic work of the Serbian choreographer, performer and dancer Marko Milić, an internationally established artist, could be seen in Slovenia only once, in 2011, when Ljubljana hosted the Balkan dance platform. His emergence into the field of performing arts is linked to the stages of non-institutional collectives in Belgrade and situations that presented themselves at the millennium as well as special pedagogical youth programmes. During those years he worked with pedagogues and choreographers Dalija Aćin Thelander, Željko Sančanin, Ivo Dimchev, Snježana Abramović, Jenny Beyer, Antoin Effroy, Paula Rosolen, Marcel Schwald and the artistic initiative known as ‘sweet and tender collaborations.
Even though it is hard to define his works, it seems that he does not focus on the issues of chorographical, movement or bodily identities or modalities, but instead prefers to focus on the issue of control, or to be more precise, he tries to establish who is the true choreographer. Marko Milić is interested in the driving forces that push forward human behaviour. These forces are choreographed by unclear orders, and he does not monitor the passivity (the lethargy or the victim), but he focuses on the series of different types of joy that emerge from them. We could say that they are the rhythms of visible, less visible and invisible human times, set in perspective. It is most likely due to the latter that Marko Milić’s works do not lack in humour or lyricalness.
In the performance Lumi Milić focuses on the research into how traumatic events form our perspectives. He wants to discover how we see the world and our fellow human beings in such situations, how abysmal events stop the time, attach us to them and lock us into a moment that cannot be escaped and choreograph us. During his research for this performance the author performed several classical Rorschach tests, psychological tests that determine the dominant psychological projections – ways of looking at the world and people – through the interpretation of sample inkblots. Lumi is a series of monochromatic sketches that are choreographed by the brutal poetry found in gay internet chatrooms. When boyfriend material appears in a chatroom totally unexpectedly and almost invisibly a turnaround happens on the market of sexual affinities and appetites. It might be unusual that it was the Serbian Association of Ballet Artists that handed him the award for innovation in the field of contemporary dance.
