BADco. is a collaborative performance collective based in Zagreb, Croatia. The artistic core of the collective are Pravdan Devlahović, Ivana Ivković, Ana Kreitmeyer, Tomislav Medak, Goran Sergej Pristaš, Nikolina Pristaš and Zrinka Užbinec.
As a combination of four choreographers, two dramaturgs and one philosopher, since its beginning (2000), BADco. has systematically focused on the research of protocols of performance, presenting and observing through structuring its projects around diverse formal and perceptual relations and contexts.
BADco. reconfigurers established relations between performance and audience, challenging perspectival givens and the architectonics of performance, problematising of communicational structures – all of which makes BADco. an internationally significant artistic phenomenon and one of Europe’s most original performance experiences.
BADco collaborated with the SEAS project in 2003-2005 during Adriatic-Balticum, creating Deleted Messages which toured with SEAS internationally to Sweden, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Ukraine and UK, as well special performances in Croatia and many other European countries.
