Returning to childhood (or never having left it), Jo Kolski cannot choose between two traditionally gendered toys - a dinette and a locomotive. He welcomes his imaginary passengers into the dining car of a transtemporal, pan-European train.
The journey encounters fragments of George Perec, the French author of Judeo-Polish origin. The posthume dialogue raises the question of European memorial legacy - from Shtetl to Triskell.
Körpermaschine is a series of choreographic investigations of industrial society, articulating the body with kinetic sculptures. By inserting playfulness into unexpected contexts, Jo Kolski deconstructs the seriousness of functionalism.
