Following the foot steps of Belgrade’s 1970s conceptual art scene the short film shows two traceurs while traversing the city on an imaginary line. Trying to find traces of the original 1970s locations the film is documenting the actual state of the city as a parkour using wide tableaus. The line has been chosen in collaboration of the parkour runners and the artist within the cityscape and shows recent developments but also established qualities within architecture.
Paripović’s work “N.P.” and other works like Marina Abramović’s “Breathing in – Breathing out” which also took place in Belgrade’s city center are giving the basis for the film. It is interweaving contemporary Parkour with the documentation about the physical limits of human bodies and changes within the city.
