TANZANWEISUNGEN (it won't be like this forever)

Tanzplattform Deutschland 2022


English / 30 mins.

‘It won’t be like this forever’, reads the sign carried across the stage by the choreographer Moritz Ostruschnjak while the dancer Daniel Conant is exhausting himself. As if he had been wound up, the protagonist tirelessly works his way through the extremely diverse canon of movement, assuming poses of resistance, combat and victory, stylized masculinity, youth culture, classic ballet, ballroom dancing and sports in rapid succession – an absurd sequence of divergent elements that overdraw, ironize and contradict each other and that, in combination, playfully yet relentlessly lead into an abyss.
