Text topic: Esthetization of Politics and Politization of Art
Text author: Вера Обрадовић
Sonja Vukićević, an avant-garde and authentic artist of the Serbian choreodrama scene, uses her body not only to express her aesthetics but also her personal and historical truths. She understands, creates and uses the body as a fundamental symbol of humanity and the universe. With the art of dance and movement she shows her own relationship with the society, individual, war, freedom, key events of the epoch, the time she lives in and the time that has passed and left its mark on the current socio-political situation. Through dance she expresses her anti-war attitude and a rebellion against fascism. In her choreographic creations, she embodies the historical-political speech and gives an engaged commentary of the society that creates and establishes political choreodrama as a unique genre.
