Menestysteos (2018)

MENESTYSTEOS, Part 1 – La Terre Des Chants Moroses
Contemporary dance production
Ehkä-production 2018

What does it mean to be successful? What kind of performances have been bestsellers in contemporary dance in the past couple of years? Which artists become successful and why? The content of the piece is based on collegial interviews and intimate testimonials on the subject of success. The performance is asking and investigating whether it is possible to specify and extract the ingredients of a successful dance performance. How does an opportunistic approach like this affect the expression and aims of an artist? Are there alternative ways to be and feel successful in the contemporary neoliberal reality?
