Fusion Reactor is a multi-genre dance concert that combines different modes of presentation ranging from a concert, performance to a dance performance. The dance concert was born out of a reflection on the holistic artwork that Žigan, with his own original music and dance, creates together with his collaborators, in a balance between spectacle and improvisation, between jazz and classical music, between ragga and hip-hop, between contemporary dance and freestyle, between singing and dancing, between an individual and a team. The reactor symbolizes the fusion and creative reaction of people and ideas on stage, transforming a small amount of mass into a large amount of energy.
