Stories are not just in words, they are also in movement. Danka Sekulovic, a circus artist from Belgrade, explores the storytelling elements of a performance. For a powerful performance you need to be able to express emotion, and take your audience on a journey. One way to do that is to tell a story with movement.
Danka has grown up focusing on movement, at first subconsciously, then by choosing to become a playwright and join the circus. From her interview, you will be able to learn how to make sure that you don’t forget to include a story in every performance. How to use your performance skills to enhance your story, rather than to hide behind them. How to be effective, and move your audience. Don’t be afraid to open up and give them what they are looking for – a great story.
