Turned inside out, I dance alone or with someone, for someone or myself. Tell a story without words, paint a picture with my body … reflecting the never-ending rhythm beating inside of me, searching for the essence of expression. My body, a primal instrument, responds to a feeling, a person, a song … it cannot lie, it cannot hide, everything is revealed.

Tajna Tanovic is a performing artist with 23 years of experience worldwide. Recent New York projects have included Canal Street Station, a radio theater piece by 31 Down, Waterfront Access, a dance film about Brooklyn’s waterfront directed by Floanne Ankah and several projects with Dalzell Productions. She is currently collaborating with Theater TAS in New York and will be featured in its show Yard Sale: New Footfalls… at the Chashama window on 37th Street from April 21-30. She is currently also working on her first solo album. www.tajnatanovic.com
