Elisabeth Gets Her Way


06 – 07 Oct 2021 | Potsdamer Tanztage 2021Dance / performance

The solo Elisabeth Gets Her Way is a tribute to the exceptional musician Elisabeth Chojnacka. Jan Martens created a danced portrait that interweaves, connects, and reflects her musical works. Her virtuosic playing of the harpsichord is reminiscent of a percussion instrument, and this rhythm sets Martens in motion. He dances playfully, as Chojnacka did with the harpsichord – sometimes swirling and dynamic, sometimes angular and stringent. The piece is additionally complemented by a documentary level.
