Ode to the Attempt (a Solo for Meself)Ode to the Attempt
is a solo that Jan Martens created for himself. After producing some almost dogmatic pieces like The Dog Days are Over (2014) and Sweat Baby Sweat (2011), this solo is a safe zone for Martens to fool around in. The result is a collage-like self-portrait laying bare choreographic and other choices and his way of working and living. Authenticity, manipulation, coolness, perfectionism, humour and melancholy form the extremes between which Martens moves, wondering whether he is part of the new generation. In this solo Martens provides insight into his way of working and living. He bares himself before you, inviting you to have a look in his head and his computer. Double bill with Eleanor Sikorski
