In his latest piece, choreographer Cédric Cherdel approaches the idea of choreographic documentation by providing a forum for the performer to speak directly to the audience. The young afghan performer, who calls himself Daniel, lives in France, is twenty-four years old and wants to become an actor.


By experimenting with the format of the One-Man-Show and supported by the musician Rezai Abdullah he creates a choreographic self-portrait that openly bears witness to longings, disappointments, plans and visions for the future. Daniel embarks on a search for an environment that allows him to reveal himself, to show himself, that can give direction and that points to the future.

The performance aims to create space to think about what drives us, where our responsibilities lie, for ourselves and for others, what moves people and what makes them decide.


The performance takes place as part of the tanzpol festival.
