Director Statement


For as long as i studied Film i was eager to shoot a film in which dance is more than a szene filling sidekick. Actually a musical would be my most wanted next project. On my way there, i had the chance to meet Nora Pfahl and her lovley dancing students. It was clear at first sight. We had to do something. A thrilling mingle of energy, r discipline and joy combined the youth of the 11 year old regular students with a choreography originally made for professional adult dancers by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, in 1983. The result led to endless assiciative pictures and topics, of one was the story of my short Fricke-Ticke.
