“Cleverly constructed on and offline alienation...” – Theaterkrant
Dunja Jocic makes filmic productions with an electrically charged and capriciously brilliant dance language. In Resident, she investigates the consequences of a digitalised society.
Striving for a perfect living situation, a man finds himself in a modern apartment complex. Although all the typical housing problems seem to have disappeared, his fears still linger. After learning that his access to his own belongings is somewhat limited, the man starts to question the utopia. Stable and quiet surroundings suddenly become as sterile as an architectural rendering. Living becomes more and more threatening.
