FUSS ZUM KOPF ("Foot to Head") is a dance performance that deals with the musicality and rhythm of aggression. The willingness to engage in conflict and depictions of violence in films serve as a source of inspiration, based on film stunt choreographies. Movement patterns are drawn from cinematically staged fight scenes and developed into a dance. By zooming in and out, repeating, accumulating and dissecting aggressive behavior in the form of violence, the piece explores inner states. States marked by tension, arousal, ambition, frustration, desire, destructiveness, and helplessness.
