Choreographer: Gideon Obarzanek

In this work, the dancers accept the challenge offered by Australian choreographer Gideon Obarzanek, previously responsible for such controversial productions as 'Petrol-Head Lover' and 'Cool White Fridge Knocked Over'. In his choreographies, Obarzanek always integrates a mix of elements from contemporary pop-art. His interest in today's musical development in the areas of jazz, fusion and avant-garde trip hop, in combination with his non-conformist vision, result in unconventional dance productions with a cartoonlike (black) humor.
