Running Piece

Dancing future – 100 Jahre Bauhaus | Jacques Poulin-Denis / Grand Poney (Montréal)  

24 – 25 May 2019 | Potsdamer Tanztage 2019Dance / performance

Running Piece is a work for dancer and treadmill. On this confined yet infinite space, a man travels without leaving, moving through the situations and moments that define us. On the path of humanity and civilisation, or on the transit to work, we are the high hope joggers, the overly capable multitaskers, the compulsive lateness sufferers. Running Piece substantiates our proneness to constantly chase our tails and our pursuit for the divine sublimity of busyness.
