Nikolina Pristaš

Nikolina Pristaš (1976) is a choreographer and dancer working in a Zagreb based performance group BADco.

After her graduation at the School for Contemporary Dance “Ana Maletić” (1994) she joined Zagreb Dance Company for which she danced for the next five years. During that time her dance teacher was Kilina Cremona (Cunningham technique) but she continued to educate herself by taking workshops/seminars with various dance artists in Europe and USA. In that period of time she danced in the productions of international as well as home choreographers – Irma Omerzo, Iva Nerina Sibila, Emilio Gutierrez, Alberto Bebeto Cidra, Alexey Taran…

Parallel to her dance occupation she studied at the University of Zagreb – Faculty of Humanities and obtained their diploma (2003) at the departments of English Language and Literature and Comparative Literature.

In 2000 together with Pravdan Devlahović, Ivana Sajko and Goran Sergej Pristaš she founded BADco.

She made her first choreographic work – choreography 2 (which was the first part of a tripartite dance performance 2tri4) – while working with that group of people. 2 was a part of the Aerowaves selection in 2002 and was awarded (Hooge Huysen prize for young talents) at the Julidans festival in Amsterdam in 2002.

She occasionally gives dance classes for companies in Zagreb and holds workshops (usually in collaboration with other BADco. members) in Croatia and abroad.
