Sanja Krsmanović Tasić: Daikon, an essay in movement about a dancer’s body

The essay in movement “Daikon” by Sanja Krsmanović Tasić deals with the body of a dancer as the basic means and instrument of expression. Through the self-ironic process of inventory and bodily archiving of layers of conscious and unconscious movements, from the stage and from private life, the author will tell the story of a body that moves motionless, of a body that is a dilapidated shell in which the spirit still plays passionately, of the delusions of the dancer’s body. A story about the constant search for true movement, and the path of dancers on the sidelines.

Thus, it ceases to be only a physical action, but also a reflexive process in which we recall previous life experiences, memories, and meet various people and landscapes. From the foggy path this solo started from, two paths separated (almost imperceptibly), one of apparent carelessness and glamour and the other of poverty and exhaustion. These paths intersected, as if in a crossword. The question remains – can a third one be opened?
