Dunja Jocic, for years an eye-catching performer with Club Guy & Roni, surprises as a choreographer with startlingly original dance projects and films. Don't talk to me in my sleep premiered at the 2015 Noorderzon Festival in Groningen, the Netherlands.
The light of passing hours and bygone days moves over small walls, past mirrors, plastic flowers and teacups of the house where a man still lives together with his mother and their cat. Though time passes outside, inside it seems the vacuum of their synchronized schizophrenic relationship made it stop. As the repetition of daily patterns creates soil for mutual irritations, driving them both to the edge of sanity, dreams of breaking free into his own independent life emerge in the mind of the man. Standing at the footsteps of where dreams can be turned into reality both start to wonder, can one be without the other? Loosely based on the relationship between Andy Warhol and Julia Warhola.
