THE PANTHER is a must see. It's considered one of the best dance performances of this year in the Netherlands. Dunja Jocic made a thrilling danse noire about the vulnerable individual in a technology-dominated society - with voice over by reknown Dutch poet, writer and actor Ramsey Nasr and dancer Simon Bus from Eindhoven.

This show tells the story of a man that gets caught up in a mysterious ultramodern apartment that eventually develops a will of its own, becoming a threat for the man living inside. Desperately trying to escape this almost imperceptible sensation of alienation, the man actually loses control, which makes him feel like a caged panther in his own house.

Sterk invoelbaar is wel het sinistere De Panter van Dunja Jocic. In Simon Bus heeft ze een ideale vertolker gevonden van een man die, naar later blijkt, slechts een simulatie van een appartement heeft gekocht, in plaats van een veilig thuis. Dat vervreemdende gegeven werkt ze mooi uit in een trio met naast de knap achterdochtig dansende Bus twee infiltrerende dansers.
