Frank Willens (DE/US)

Radiant Optimism 

Prospects have dimmed, opportunities are on a modest level, the general mood fluctuates. In this situation, one must not put one’s head in the sand, Frank Willens is convinced, because “then it’s really and truly over”. He and his four dancers have decided to celebrate a “radiant optimism” here and now, with the aid of the encouraging powers of joy and positivity. This optimism is not to be understood as naivety, but in Noam Chomsky’s sense as turning towards a strategy by means of which, in spite of all the gloomy omens, a better future can be created. This is why the Californian-born, Berlin-based choreographer, dancer of the year several times over, evokes the wholesome effects of believing in a bright future in this colourful and spirited piece.
