Dance is a combination of precise execution and the visualization of thought. When learning new material, we memorize and reproduce a collection of movements. It’s almost like learning a new language.

Where: Pula, Croatia, Europe

When: 2nd – 8th July 2018

Deadline for applications: June 1st, 2018

But how do our thoughts materialize these movements into dance?

The left side of the brain performs tasks of logic and the right side is in charge of creativity. How can we route the execution of movement through both parts of the brain?

During this 7-day summer intensive workshop, we will look for the connection between movement and thought. Dunja will be guiding training and working on repertoire with the participants.


Dunja started out as a rhythmic gymnast in former Yugoslavia and competed at the World Championship held in Bruxelles in 1992. She studied at the ballet school Lujo Davico in Belgrade and the Rotterdam Dance Academy Codarts. Among others, she danced for Hans van Manen, Emio Greco/PC, Ballet du Nord (Lille, France) and is known for her work with Club Guy & Roni. In 2013 she was nominated for the Golden Swan for most impressive dance performer.

Dunja creates multidisciplinary performances exploring the back rooms of the human psyche. Her work varies from performances for the stage to dance films and opera and is being performed in the Netherlands as well as internationally.

Location: Cape Kamenjak, Cove Polje.

30 meters from the nearest beach.
