Valentin Tszin

Primitive, coarse and untreated – in Instincts, the choreographer Valentin Tszin gives free reign to the wishes and desires that are too often repressed. Moving through different states of being, he drives his body and mind to the edge of exhaustion – with the goal of freeing himself from his own needs. Over the course of recurring motifs observed from life, he examines the options available to become master of one’s own instincts. Or do they hold the key to individual happiness?
