Artship Dance/Theater toured to Belgrade in the Fall of 2004 with the original production of “Same River Twice.” that ran successfully at the ODC Theater, in San Francisco in July of 2004. Based on a saying by Heraclitus, 5th Century BC:

"You cannot step in the same river twice."

The “Same River Twice,” a dance/theater performance, explores the complexities of the changing relationships Immigrants have to their original and adopted homes against the background of constant change.

In September 2004 we took the work to Belgrade, former Yugoslavia. We were received warmly and Artship Dance/Theater had a very successful tour in Belgrade. It consisted of two performances in SKC, a leading theater in central Belgrade that showcases new work. Then, typical of our practice anywhere, we engaged in a full-day workshop with the 80-member children's performing group "Deciji Osmeh" (Children's Smile). Also, typical of our practice, we engaged in community outreach with a mini-performance and a Q&A session centered around our newest ongoing project that celebrates urban trees. This event was presented in collaboration with the Natural History Museum at their facilities in the expansive and historical Kalemegnan Park in Belgrade.
