Spectacular Start to 10th Anniversary Šibenik Dance Festival

July 20, 2021 – The streets of Šibenik are overflowing with life this July. On town squares, streets and in parks, different events appeal to every generation and demographic. On Monday 19th, the opening of the Supertoon animation festival sees families gather to watch feature-length cartoons in the Old Town streets. Above their heads, in St. Michael's Fortress, a much more startling evening's entertainment is taking place. It's the opening of the 10th anniversary Šibenik Dance Festival.

'Burning Water' by renowned Greek choreographer Andonis Foniadakis is not always easy to watch. Commissioned specifically for the ballet company of Croatian National Theatre Ivan pl. Zajc in Rijeka, the dancers have had a year to perfect it since its Capital of Culture premiere.

The audience takes their seats at sunset. But, as the performance begins, everything is enveloped in black. Minimally lit, androgynous dancers arrive on stage in a most unorthodox manner, their bodies twisted and contorted beyond regular, recognisable movement.

“That is the signature style of Andonis Foniadakis,” says Šibenik Dance Festival director Zorana Mihelčić. “Everybody knows it because he's so well established; very nervous, interrupted movements. I personally love his work and right now he's one of the most frequently requested choreographers in the world.”

Having helmed Šibenik Dance Festival from its start to this, its 10th anniversary, Mihelčić is more than satisfied with its progress. And, so she should be. In the seats on opening night, German, English, Slovenian, Croatian, and at least one Scandinavian language are heard. On the stage, an international touring ballet troupe and world-renowned choreographer. This is a far cry from the festival's beginnings.

Evolution of Šibenik Dance Festival

“We started Šibenik Dance Festival 10 years ago as a small review of dance studios and awarded dancers. But not, professionals,” says Mihelčić. “At that time, it was held in the square just in front of Šibenik cathedral. It grew steadily each year until 2014 when the first of our fortresses was renovated. Within a month of St. Michael's opening, we secured permission to hold our opening night there. That really put us on the map and we've been there ever since.”

“We now have two programmes running simultaneously; we kept the amateur and student dancers programme, which was our foundation. But, now we have professional, international dance companies as a major part of each event.”

Continuing throughout this week, Šibenik Dance Festival manages to entertain everyone currently in Šibenik. Committed fans of contemporary dance and art will visit more spectacular venues like Barone Fortress. On Wednesday 21st, a visit there by Zoltán Fodor's Inversedance – an incredibly well-respected dance company from Budapest. They arrive with a new performance 'You and the World'. Its premiere was just one month ago. The next night, Thursday 22 July, jazz and hip hop dancing, again at Fortress Barone and the Association of Ballet Artists of Serbia.

In Arsen Art House, conceptual and contemporary pieces by Rita Gobi from Hungary and regional star Isidora Stanišić on Tuesday 20th. The festival concludes in the same venue on Friday 23 with a conceptual piece called 'Body Shots'. It's a co-production between Germany's CocoonDance Company and Zagreb Dance Center.

Although, for many visitors, the highlight of Šibenik Dance Festival is still the public performance on the city streets by youngsters and amateur dancers.

“This year, it's a really exciting mixture, accessible to everyone,” says Zorana Mihelčić, clearly excited about the performances to come. “20 minutes of great tap dancers from Dubrovnik, then 10 to 15 minutes of very young students from the ballet school in Split. After that, contemporary dancers from Požega, also salsa, hip hop fusion, classical and contemporary ballet. It will be great.”

The free public performance of youngsters and amateurs at the 10th anniversary of Šibenik Dance Festival takes place at Poljana square, just in front of Šibenik National Theatre on Wednesday 21 and Thursday 22 July between the hours of 19.00 and 22.00.

Šibenik Features in Season 6 of Below Deck Mediterranean!

June 30th, 2021 - The most-watched American reality series Below Deck Mediterranean, which was filmed last year in Croatia in the Šibenik area, started showing on popular cable television Bravo TV, said Iva Bahunek, head of the Croatian Tourist Board in Los Angeles.

"The show will last at least 16 weeks, which is the perfect time period for additional promotion of Croatia. Namely, this is the period when Americans most often book their trips for next year, and an additional benefit is the fact that this series is shown in other countries as well. The production team assessed that of all the seasons so far, the most attractive and most interesting is the season filmed in Croatia, which is even more pleasing," Bahunek pointed out, adding that this was the first Hollywood production to be filmed entirely and without interruption over the past year outside the U.S. during the global pandemic.

HTZ reports that this popular American reality show is broadcast on the Bravo TV network, one of the most-watched American cable televisions, which in 2020 recorded a large increase in "on-demand viewing", with 427 million, as well as 222 million "live broadcasts". The concept of the series includes following the professional and private lives of the crew and their guests on mega yachts, and so far a total of 15 seasons of this reality series have been filmed, consisting of three separate units: Below Deck, which is filmed in tropical destinations, then Below Deck Mediterranean, which is filmed in the Mediterranean, and the latest variant of the Below Deck Sailing Yacht, which, unlike other variants of the series, is filmed on large sailboats.

Many American viewers of Bravo TV, before the start of the Below Deck Mediterranean broadcast, were able to enjoy the beauties of Croatia, more precisely of Split through the broadcast of the Below Deck Sailing Yacht 2 franchise.

And even cooler news? 

Most of the Below Deck Mediterranean Season 6 crew visited the Break Time shop in Split, shortly after filming for the season ended in Šibenik!

206852658_206865941319224_208946763537847923_n.jpeg

"We got to hang out with them a bit in our VIP area upstairs and we are now so excited to find out what adventures they had aboard M/Y Lady Michelle together, in the weeks before they came to Split," said Break Time. You can read more about it here!

Lorde Returns to Her Roots for 2022 St. Michael's Fortress Spectacle in Šibenik

June 23, 2021 - One of the biggest pop stars of the new generation will premiere in this part of Europe at the St. Michael's Fortress on June 18, 2022. Lorde returns to her roots with a spectacle in Šibenik next year. 

At an extremely exclusive concert with only 1,050 tickets on sale, the New Zealander with Croatian roots will recall some of her mega-hits from the first two albums and present "Solar Power," which will be released later this summer.

203254321_10158297969277507_4932504480780126727_n.jpeg

A multiple Grammy winner and one of the youngest performers to win international rankings, Lorde's full name is Ella Maria Lani Yelich-O’Connor. Born in New Zealand, her mother has Dalmatian roots, and Lorde herself has dual citizenship.

Ever since she appeared on the scene as a 16-year-old in 2013, with the then biggest hit of the year “Royals,” Lorde has pushed the boundaries of pop and managed to stay on top, constantly playing by her own rules. Ella does not use social networks at all, she rarely appears promotionally, and she takes long breaks between albums, which usually last three to four years.

Lorde currently has 12 million albums sold worldwide, as well as 10 billion streams. Unobtrusively she became the voice of an entire generation with her debut "Pure Heroine," which sold three times platinum and won two Grammys. The single "Royals" achieved a record audience. In addition, Lorde became the youngest artist and the only one from New Zealand to take first place on Billboard's list of the 100 best since 1987.

 

Time magazine named her one of the most influential teenagers in the world. She was on the Forbes list of the 30 most influential under-30s, on the cover of Rolling Stone, and she performed with Nirvana at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony in 2014. The second album, “Melodrama,” debuted at number one on the Billboard charts of 200 albums, topped the album charts in 45 countries, and won a Grammy nomination for Album of the Year.

The new album and the accompanying tour are new proof of its uniqueness. The long-awaited return was announced with the single "Solar Power" from the album of the same name, which will be released on August 20. The song received praise from critics and audiences, topped the Spotify global and US charts days since its release, already has 30 million streams, and has been marked as trending worldwide.

NME and Pitchfork give the new single a high five. Billboard praises Lorde and “Solar Power” as a fresh chapter in her work, while the Guardian says Lorde’s comeback song sets her apart from others in terms of her creativity. “The album celebrates nature, and with it, I try to capture the feelings I have when I’m out. In times of sadness, confusion, infatuation, I turn to nature in search of answers. The song 'Solar Power' is a tribute to the infectious and flirtatious summer that overwhelms us all," says Lorde.

 

The news of the big world tour that will cover more than 40 countries and announce the release of the new album was transmitted by international media, and the long-awaited appearance is special because of the carefully chosen locations. On tour, Lorde plays in locations she personally chooses and wants to visit, mostly the best concert stages in the world. Thus, the special Šibenik fortress found itself on the list in the company of legendary concert destinations such as Radio City Music Hall in New York, Shrine Auditorium in LA, Roundhouse in London, or Castello di Villafranca in Verona.

Tickets for the spectacle at the Šibenik Fortress go on sale this Friday, June 25, at 10:00 for 330 kuna. Unfortunately, only 1050 of them are available, and a maximum of 4 tickets can be purchased on request.

Tickets are available through the Eventim system, their physical points of sale, and online at eventim.hr.

Jared Leto Brings Back Mars Island Festival to Obonjan

June 14, 2021 - American actor, musician, and frontman of the band Thirty Seconds to Mars, Jared Leto, is returning to the Croatian coast with Mars Island Festival. 

After last year's cancellation of the Mars Island festival due to the still current coronavirus pandemic, the participants of the three-day festival will re-occupy the island of Obonjan near Šibenik from August 20th to 23rd, reports Vecernji List.

"Mars Island is a three-day experience on a private island in Croatia. Rest and regain strength with yoga among the trees, jump into the Adriatic Sea, watch a midnight movie or watch the stars, and catch two intimate performances by the band Thirty Seconds to Mars. Mars Island is an experience like never before," reads the band's official website.

The group's website also states that this year the cheapest ticket is $1649, or a little more than 10,100 kuna, and the price goes up to $7149 for a VIP package, which is a little more than 44 thousand kuna. All tickets include two full-length group concerts, activities with the band, and accommodation and food. Guests stay in air-conditioned tents that can accommodate four people and access shared facilities such as showers and bathrooms located near each camp. If you want a bathroom in a tent, still shared with roommates, you will have to pay up to 18,000 kuna for a ticket!

The organizers also offer massages for 550 kuna, tattooing for 600, and one additional night on the island 3380 kuna. This will be the second year that the festival has been held in Croatia. During the first four years, it has been held in America under the name 'Camp Mars.' The festival came to the Adriatic in 2019 when the price was slightly lower. Recall, two years ago, some fans were disappointed because, although they were expecting concerts, Leto then rented the island to - preach to them.

The photos where a large group of people is seen sitting and listening to the musician have caused a lot of ridicule because all the participants have to wear completely white clothes, and Jared Leto nurtures the image of Jesus Christ. They resemble a cult, which Leto himself embraced as a joke and wrote next to the published photos: "Yes, this is a cult." However, in the comments under the photos, there were also many enthusiastic fans who, as they write, spent the three best days of their lives in Croatia.

Adriatic Counties To Be Removed From Slovenian Red List

June 11, 2021 - Good news after it was established yesterday that Slovenian tourists would not need to go into self-isolation when returning from the Adriatic counties, according to the decision of the Slovenian Government to remove the Croatian coast from its red list, which will take effect from tomorrow.

At yesterday's session, the Slovenian Government decided that the Adriatic Croatia administrative unit is no longer on their red list. The counties of Istria, Primorje-Gorski Kotar, Lika-Senj, Zadar, Šibenik-Knin, Split-Dalmatia, and Dubrovnik-Neretva were thus removed from the list of countries and areas with a high risk of coronavirus infection, reports hrturizam.hr.

Namely, in areas not on the dark red or red list, there is no high risk of SARS-CoV-2 infection, so a person coming from such an area can enter Slovenia without being sent into mandatory self-isolation if they submit proof that they've been in the area.

Apart from Croatia, Switzerland, the Vatican, the Austrian administrative unit of Tyrol, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Luxembourg, Germany, Poland, Slovakia, and the Portuguese Azores were removed from the red list of European Union countries at yesterday's session. Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, and Montenegro are no longer on the same list comprised of third countries. The administrative units of Pannonian Croatia, the City of Zagreb, and Northern Croatia are still on the red list. This means that a person coming from these areas in Croatia is quarantined for ten days due to possible infection with the SARS-CoV-2 virus upon returning to Slovenia

The decision to remove the Adriatic counties from their red list, made by the Slovenian Government yesterday, will take effect on Saturday, June 12th.

Remembering Dražen Petrović 28 Years Later

June 7, 2021 - Remembering Dražen Petrović, who died 28 years ago today. 

On this day, 28 years ago, Dražen Petrović, a member of the Croatia basketball team and one of the best Croatian athletes of all time, was killed in a car accident on the motorway near the German city of Ingolstadt.

He was a basketball player and a role model, the Mozart of sports, but tragically died at the age of 29 during the peak of his playing career.

Dražen played his last match against Slovenia in the qualifications for the European Championship in Wroclaw. It was June 5, 1993. The Croatia national team returned from Poland by plane, but Dražen set off in a car with his girlfriend behind the wheel. He has no idea it would be his last drive.

 

Dražen was born on October 22, 1964, in Šibenik. His love for basketball has been with him since he was a small child. His exceptional perseverance and dedication to daily training with undeniable talent quickly made him one of the best in all age groups.

At the age of sixteen, he joined the Šibenik first team. He brought his hometown to the title of Yugoslav champion in 1983.

Cibona and Real Madrid were unreachable to all European clubs when Dražen played in their ranks. Having achieved everything in Europe, he went to the strongest league in the world - the NBA.

Although he sat more than played for the first season due to politics inside Portland, he showed his phenomenal talent two years later with the New Jersey Nets. Not only was he the team’s best shooter in 1992 (especially at three-pointers), but also the best European to have played in the NBA league so far. 

 

That year, Dražen led the Croatia national team to its greatest success, silver at the Olympic Games in Barcelona, ​​in the final clash with the only real Dream Team played by the best representatives of the NBA and some of the best basketball players in history - Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, Scottie Pippen, and others.

As a player, he received the Franjo Bučar State Award for Sports in 1992, and posthumously, this time for his life's work, he received the same award in 2002.

 

He was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2002.
