How it Ends
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.
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.

"This show is a celebration of the playing human being, who can entertain himself infinitely with just a box of building blocks."
