Facilitated by the Zagreb Dance Company, the two-week residency at the Mediterranean Dance Centre in the Istrian town of Svetvinčenat, Croatia, was undertaken by composer Lucien Johnson and choreographer/dancer Lucy Marinkovich. This residency was used as an incubator for their creative relationship under Borderline, and to explore simultaneous creation methodologies for dance and music.
