Only Human

Only Human, OnlyHuman is a solo inspired by Friedrich Nietzsche’s aphoristic volume Human, All Too Human. The performer/ choreographer is investigating the stark contradiction between our race’s capacity for freedom and beauty against its most destructive and illogical behaviors. Created in collaboration with the artists Robert Flynt, Yoann Trellu and Nicole Carroll, this highly kinetic and virtuosic dance is a meditation on bodily images and stereotypes of self in the context of the environment – geography, emotions, social structure.
