Jovica Radosavljevic

36 years old

“I’m a choreographer, a dancer, a son, a brother, to some I’m also a mother, and people sometimes throw slurs at me. As soon as I turn my back, they call me a Gypsy son of a bitch.”


Jovica inherited the hat from his grandfather and wore it when performing with the folklore ensemble he manages. A hat is an important part of the traditional Romani male costume, while the preservation of tradition and dancing encourages the strengthening of community and the preservation of identity.
