The performance "We are not monsters" was developed through a unique collaboration in the dance world of today. The idea for the performance is coming from Dalibor Šandor, artist with learning disabilities, who was developing it together with Xavier Le Roy, Alexandre Achour, Scarlet Yu, Saša Asentić and with the artistic support of other Per.Art members. The uniqueness of the work is also visible in the fact that this is the first time (in Serbia, but also in a wider European context) that this kind of dance work is shown in an art gallery, where artists with and without disability question the relation between visitors and works of art in a national museum, investigating new ways of creating a performance and expanding the very understanding of the notion of a collection, which is enriched through live performance by introduction of questions, problems and position particular for persons with disability. In this case, it is the collection of The Gallery of Matica srpska, longtime partner of Per.Art.
