Drug is a dance performance based on movement practice by Vigur Gurdu that plays with the idea of the other.
At the entrance of MSU you will find Vigur dressed in a t-shirt displaying the website drug.upri.se
If you approach him and check what he is doing he will most probably explain you that he is dancing and if you want to know more, you are welcome to join him at easy stepping that he is doing as a base of this practice.
Becoming other literally opens the door to yet another reality and doing Drug will change that forever.

What can you do when you see Vigur doing Drug?
You are welcome to approach him and ask him “What on Earth are you doing?”
Probably the answer will be: “I’m dancing and if you want to know more about it, you are welcome to join me in these easy steps”.
And he will explain you the easy steps everyone can do.
To meet Vigur by chance doing Drug is best way to meet him and the game Drug.
In the book Darinka Novak Maja Dekleva Lapajne wrote about improvising being connected to the tracing. She claims that tracing is the key of imrpovisation, it consists of listening and processing what you heard and then give trace as well. Then I stumbled on Derrida talking about trace (Tracing and trace) and then I connected all to Drug.
Drug is about listening and tracing and go to unpresent presence. It is to take rhizome into account, being the thing underground, something behind, before, after, not visible, not present. For me it means to take most of what is into account of what we do.
And the game of Drug I believe maximizes possibilities for such trace to realize in the experience of unpresent presence 🙂
Knitting in Slovenian means vezenje. It is connected to the verb to connect (povezati) and vez means connection. The signs ‘drug’ on the dresses is thus connected with a filament. As the use of expression ‘drug’ is connected to ‘vez’. Everything is literal and lateral. Also the damage. And bliss as well. This aswellness and the literal and the lateral make crucial part of the principle upri.se.
