In kaleidoscopic scenes, “Unstern” illuminates the very moment before catastrophe strikes; it is a blend of violence, nationalist propaganda, incipient battle cries, machismo and insecurity. In a wide, empty space, Munich-based choreographer and dancer Moritz Ostruschnjak evokes a dismal and threatening atmosphere. Euphoria, ecstasy and disruption are juxtaposed. The longing for a collective result in the creation of body formations that on the one hand resort to aggression and violence and on the other hand lead to the adjustment and disciplining of bodies. The demonstration of dominance and authority are followed by surrender and destruction. Expressive images bring about narrative movements and performative scenes. A sequence of conditions, sensations and motives evolve into an image of a society on the edge, the onset of a new era. In his previous work, Ostruschnjak dealt with the changes in physical and social experience in times of digitization and virtualization. “Unstern” builds on this and, in reference to the beginning of the 20th century, reflects on the fundamental parameters of social, technological and political change as well as its implications.
