This film is a mersmerizing hour in the presence of Marco Goecke, one of the world’s leading choreographers, a glum man who admits that dance interests him more than life. Goecke knows his creative worth, and there’s something refreshing about hearing a man tout his own unique choreographic language — one that cannot be imitated. His dance is tough, masculine, sometimes violent, but also sensual and intimate, and requires great dedication from those performing it. Outside of the rehearsal room, Goecke is difficult, demanding and self-centered. He is preoccupied with a feeling of “otherness,” and suffers from panic attacks that cast a shadow on his life and work. However, Goecke’s dance conveys his true genius, and his unique vision that is expressed at every moment.

After the film there is an interview with Naomi Perlov, artistic director of Suzanne Dellal Center, and choreographer Marco Goecke.
