BADco. is a collaborative performance collective based in Zagreb, Croatia. The artistic core of the collective are Ivana Ivković, Ana Kreitmeyer, Tomislav Medak, Goran Sergej Pristaš, Nikolina Pristaš, Lovro Rumiha and Zrinka Užbinec.

As a combination of three choreographers / dancers, two dramaturgs and one philosopher, plus the company production manager, since its beginning (2000), BADco. systematically focuses on the research of protocols of performing, presenting and observing by structuring its projects around diverse formal and perceptual relations and contexts. Reconfiguring established relations between performance and audience, challenging perspectival givens and architectonics of performance, problematizing of communicational structures – all of that makes BADco. an internationally significant artistic phenomenon and one of the most differentiated performance experiences.

So far the group has produced the following works: Man.Chair (2000), 2tri4 (2001), Diderot’s Nephew or Blood is Thicker than Water (2001), Solo Me (2002), RibCage (2002), Walk This Way (2003), Mass (for Election Day Silence) (2003), Deleted Messages (2004), Fleshdance (2004), memories are made of this… performance notes (2006), Gravidation (2006), Changes (2007), 1 poor and one 0 (2008), The League of Time (2009), SEMI-INTERPRETATIONS or how to explain contemporary dance to an undead hare (2010), Point of Convergence (2010), Responsibility for Things Seen, Tales in Negative Space (2011), Black and Forth (2012), TVolution will not be televised (2013), A Pound of Hysteria, Acceleration… – melodrama (2013), Broken Performances (2013), A Lesser Evil (2014), The Drawer (2015), The Stranger (2015), The Eyes Melted (2015).

BADco. je kolaborativna izvedbena skupina koja radi u Zagrebu. Jezgru skupine čine: Ivana Ivković, Ana Kreitmeyer, Tomislav Medak, Goran Sergej Pristaš, Nikolina Pristaš, Lovro Rumiha i Zrinka Užbinec.

Od svog osnutka u 2000. godini, BADco. se kroz suradnju troje koreografa/plesača, dvoje dramaturga i jednog filozofa, uz producenta skupine, sistematično bavi istraživanjem protokola izvođenja, predstavljanja i gledanja strukturirajući svoje projekte unutar različitih formalnih i percepcijskih odnosa i sklopova. Rekonfiguracija etabliranih odnosa izvedbe i publike, propitkivanje perspektivnih datosti i arhitektonike izvedbe, problematizacija komunikacijskih struktura – sve to čini BADco. međunarodno relevantnim umjetničkim fenomenom i jedinstvenim izvedbenim doživljajem.
