Dunja Jocic - The Protagonist

Bookmark

A surrealistic performance in which a woman is losing her online and offline identity.<br />
<br />
Dunja Jocic is one of the most exciting new choreographers in the Netherlands. She received the Prize of the Dutch Dance Festival in 2018. From an equally original as uncompromising view of dance, she creates hallucinatory, cinematic performances with an electrically charged and capriciously virtuoso dance language. In her latest performance The Protagonist we follow a narcissistic young woman who is a computer-addict. She becomes increasingly entangled in the digital world and finds it more and more difficult to maintain herself. In an attempt to get control over her life, she rigorously decides to go offline. Her escape into the analogue world sets off a stream of surreal daydreams, where the present merges with the past in the person of the mythic, violent, and tragic Queen Mary of England a.k.a. Bloody Mary. In an astonishing stream of images the woman fights to protect her identity.
