“As a child I dreamed of becoming a football coach. Now instead…”, says the physically disabled Viennese choreographer, dancer and philosopher Michael Turinsky in his solo “heteronomous male”. Heteronomous is the opposite of autonomous, i.e. of being independent and free. The artist fluctuates just as unfreely between the situation of a child and the state of a grown-up man, between helplessness and eros, the logics of a disabled body and the laws of society and choreography. This latest piece is his third to date. Employing seriousness and irony, this extraordinary choreographer examines both sensuously and intellectually the foundations and identities of that dangerous territory he treads as a disabled man and dancer.
