This solo requires patience. Michael Turinsky cannot and will not use his body at the tempo the present day demands. Instead, he playfully and humorously outlines the image of a political movement with scope for individual needs. Such as those his resistant body always has.

Slowly, and with intense concentration, Michael Turinsky builds a wooden model railway while philosophising about the limited options open to contemporary political resistance movements. Based on his experience of physical disability, he advocates protesting against making bodies conform to the prevailing structures of mobility and mobilisation.

The production follows the choreographer’s tempo, thereby showing the relationship between his body and what surrounds it as something fundamentally fragile: as one that can lose its balance all too easily and thus run up against many boundaries, but also overcome them, either in moments of rapid acceleration or of rapt slowness. Turinsky celebrates both these states in PRECARIOUS MOVES and uses dance to connect his body with the sensory world and thus also the audience in an entirely new way.
