"In the contemporary world, destruction and violence can only be opposed by the creation of sense"
– DAH Teatar
In 2001, The New York Times hailed DAH Teatar's visionary fusion of the personal and the political as possessing "poignant intensity."
"DAH" is Serbian for "breath."
For the creators of DAH Teatar "Breath" means "to breathe in, to gather strength, to persevere, to be spiritual, to honor the spirit of life--warmth, movement, creation."
DAH Teatar was formed in 1991 out of a need for profound, experimental work that could explore performance themes of violence relative to women in viscerally expressive and intellectually considered terms and reach an audience at profound emotional levels. The work of the company is aimed toward a continual exchange of knowledge, experience, and ideas amongst artists, participants, students, and educators from various theatrical and national traditions.
As part of a national USA tour, DAH Teatar joined students and faculty from across the curriculum at Knox for a week-long residency of lectures, classes, workshops, and performances.
This residency was sponsored by a grant from the Trust for Mutual Understanding; the Department of Theatre, the Fellowes Fund, the Greig Fund, the Liz Jahnke Metz Fund, the Karil Kirk-Ortner Fund, the Faculty Committee for Cultural Events, the Knox College Support Group, Students Against Sexism in Society, the Office of the Dean of Students, and the Office of the Dean of the College.
