Fourklor has thus far produced well over a dozen physical theatre performances. The company's debut was Who Drew a Ski Jump for Mr. Stanko (1994), which was also performed in Prague, Hamburg, and Leipzig. Its next performance Do I Dream the Memory or Do I Remember the Dream [Sanjam spomin, a se spominjam sanj] (1996) received an award at Infant Festival, Serbia, while Potočan received the Golden Bird Award for this production. The performance Melancholic Thoughts [Melanholične misli] (1998) received a jury prize at the Sarajevo MESS.
In 2005, Fourklor premièred an extremely successful work Rusty Trumpets [Zarjavele trobente], produced by Vitkar Institute and Cankarjev dom Culture and Congress Centre, which received the Audience Award at the Gibanica (Moving Cake) Festival of Slovene Dance. Another awarded show was Seeing through touch [Skozi oči dotika] (2010), which won a jury award at PUF International Alternative Theatre Festival 2011.
Potočan is professionally active since 1986, and prior to founding Fourklor, he danced for two-and-a-half years in the Belgium-based company Ultima Vez, led by Wim Vandekeybus. Nowadays he often collaborates as a dancer, choreographer, or movement adviser with the physical theatre group Betontanc and a number of other awarded theatre and dance performances. He is also head of the Vitkar Institute.
Fourklor's performances have appeared at a number of home and international dance and theatre festivals, among others at international theatre festivals MOT, Macedonia; MESS, Bosnia and Herzegovina: BITEF, Serbia; Homo Alibi Festival, Latvia; Man In Fest Festival, Romania; as well as in a number of theatres across Europe.
