Perseverance, trial and error, getting up, starting all over again and sometimes giving up. That was the starting point for this performance. As part of her research, Jelena Kostić spoke with professional athletes and dancers and with women in top positions. Their concrete, personal stories were the driving force behind a performance in which dancing, free running and a hint of Domino Day are brought together.

Two dances populate the playing field. They each have a clear goal in mind, but the road to it is filled with obstacles, both physical and mental. HOW IT ENDS is a poignant performance about the need for flexibility, perseverance and cooperation in dealing with obstacles. 

In HOW IT END the dancers are not only confronted with each other, but also with a setting full of life-size dominoes. This way, the Dutch-Serbian choreographer Jelena Kostić brings the spontaneity and capriciousness of life to the dance floor. In the most literal sense of hte word, the blocks and their unpredictable behaviour, throw up obstacles.

FREE RUNNING
Jelena Kostić uses the body as the ultimate narrative in a dance language full of contrasts and emotions. For HOW IT ENDS she found inspiration in free running, a genre within urban dance in which the dancers relate to different obstacles and elements in their environment.
