We’re now working on MEPHISTO WALTZ.
The idea came to me during the filming of the «Faust» by A. Sokurov
The forced immobility and the total ban even for my daily excercises (to keep the character’s spirit intact) were exhausting.
Now this is a kind of dance version of the film coming up as «revenge».

It’s like a libretto or a manual.
And last but not least: my notion entitled „Motorway – the moles’ tomb“ has been approved for consideration by the Greens. By boring six cm wide holes at two meter intervals on all roads passing a wood moles can reach the surface freely. Too many of them get stuck under the asphalt only to find death!
