In Dog Years I'm Dead

 

(2018, HD, Stereo, 13 Min.)

 

In Dog Years I’m Dead shows young ballet dancers training and commenting their exercises with quotes from known personalities  (from Kim Kardashian and Sasha Grey to Toni Bentley, Samuel Beckett and dancers or choreographers like Mikhail Baryschnikov und George Balanchine.)

 

To what extent the children and adolescents who say those memorable, sometimes deeply philosophical phrases, humorous statements and seemingly banal truisms understand them remains unclear. Within that disconcerting contrast a full picture arises, which is as fascinating as it is  contradictory- the work is about dance but is able to point far beyond it.
