After the premiere at the 24th International festival of contemporary arts - City of women, Nataša Živković goes on a tour with the performance Sonny.

Sonny is an attempt at an anthropological research of a specific phenomenon in a performative form. It is an amazed fascination with images and stories of sworn virgins or “virginas” from the remote parts of Montenegro, Albania, Kosovo and Metohija. It is a hole in the system which maintains that same system. It is drag in relation to the question of surviving in a man’s world asking us in what world we live.

"...the body of Nataša Živković is becoming a tool, a device, a substance that no longer wants to be defined in any (sexual) direction, but wants to communicate through its own motion and visual "hermaphrodite" potential, where her image and choreographic attachments constantly engage in double sex image - with the aim that both of them simultaneously erase and create a being that does not adapt to external conventions, but wants to realize its own, from tradition and ideologies, independent policy of one's own body." (Z. Dobovšek, Dnevnik, 8. 10. 2018)
