Dancing Shoulder to Shoulder in the Kolo

Kolo Sumejja women freed from the tedium of daily life but not disengaged from the living or the dead tie past, prsent and future in the South Slavic folk dance

The rhythm of both the community and individual as they dance the narratives of the course of the life such as; planting and harvest, seasonal festive rites, family traditions and even festivals honoring divine figures with the Day of Bread and Mother Mary for the Croatians, swell through all collectives as an extension of personhood beyond the confines placed on their female gender.
