From an as original as uncompromising vision on dance, Dunja Jocic makes hallucinating and filmic performances with an electrically loaded and capriciously virtuous dance language.
In her latest performance the Protagonist, we follow a narcissistic, computer addicted young lady. She is becoming increasingly entangled in the digital world and keeps finding more difficulties to stay standing in the different realities.
The present mixes with the time of the mythical, violent and tragic Queen Mary.
In an attempt to get grip on her life, she makes the rigorous decision to go offline. Her escape to the analogue world causes a stream of surrealistic daydreams. As in a confused online searching machine, she gets caught up in historical inconsistencies. The present mixes with the time of the mythical, violent and tragic Queen Mary. The woman has to fight for the maintenance of her identity.
