Eden transplanted, live performance by Eva Petric at the occassion of the World Heart Day and the 50-years anniversary of the first successful human heart transplantation and heart by-pass surgery, organized by MC Medicor, Cankarjev dom Performing Arts Centre Ljulbljana, Slovenia.

Synopsis: Eden did not begin or end with Eva. Eva, appearing in every human, is on a search for a new home for mankind after prospects for a future on Earth are shattered. Intertwined with video projections within a lace installation, this performance frames Eva as the first case of human organ transplantation. And it exports the idea of Mitochondrial Eva into outer space.

Director: Eva Petric. Composer: EvaPetric in cooperation with Matija Strnisa. Male Voice: Oliver Zehetner. Choreography and Movement Direction: Janis Brenner. Lace installation by Eva Petric. Video projected onto lace installation; Eva Petric. Video of the live performance: Artis Filmproduction (Ivan Klaric)
