Serbian/Dutch choreographer Dunja Jocic won the prijs voor aanstormend talent during Dutch Dance Festival 2018. Her newest choreography The Panther is based on the poem by German poet Rilke.
The Panter is a thrilling ‘danse-noire’ about the vulnerable individual in a technology-dominated society. The tale, told by Ramsey Nasr, is about a man who gets entangled in a mysterious ultra-modern apartment, that feels like a new body. While the house is developing a will of its own, he tries to escape this sensation of alienation. His loss of control makes him feel like a caged panter.
