The German choreographer Marco Goecke is one of the greatest dance makers of our times. His controversial pieces for companies including Nederlands Danstheater are dark, evocative and magical.
Thin Skin is an intimate portrait of an uncompromising choreographer. We follow him on a tour of European dance stages and discover that although fear rules Goecke’s life, it is also the driving force behind his unique dance idiom. ‘Transposing my demons into dance lets me make them visible, tangible – lets me transform them into beauty. That’s my only motivation.’
