Jelena Kostić uses the power of choreography in dance, film and theatre. 

In a visually and physically powerful style, she tells true stories that deal deeply into the courage and fallibility of human beings. With every movement she creates, she questions our conceptions of success, happiness and fear.

Jelena Kostić zet de kracht van choreografie in voor dans, film en theater. In een visueel en fysiek krachtige stijl vertelt zij ware verhalen die diep ingaan op de moed en feilbaarheid van de mens. Met elke beweging die ze creëert, bevraagt ze onze opvattingen over succes, geluk en angst.
