Club Guy & Roni invites: Dunja Jocic + Kwame Asafo-Adjei
Dunja Jocic – The Previous Owner
Dunja Jocic spent years in the Club Guy & Roni ensemble, but has now become an independent choreographer and filmmaker. She has won multiple awards for her work as a choreographer and dancer. She recently won a “Zwaan award” (2021), one of the most prestigious dance awards, for her performance The Panther. The jury named Jocic’s work the ‘most impressive dance production’
Most impressive dance production – ‘The Panter’ by Dunja Jocic
“Jocic’s performative language has an electrical charge and an alienating effect. She ensures that the dancers find each other where necessary and that they operate seperately when required. Under Jocic’s leadership, they deliver an exceptional performance.” – VSCD jury report ‘Most impressive dance production’
In collaboration with Rik van den Bos, resident writer at Noord Nederlands Toneel, Jocic explores the idea of transhumanism. In a near future, the mind of a dying man is uploaded into a young body, spurring a battle between dance and text over who owns the newly created being.
