"What I show is private, but it also goes beyond. I am busy with what we all know. A desire for freedom. An urge to conquer fear. Every man is different but on a more profound level we are the same.

Who is stronger. In fact it is that other who has to dance. The struggle or the game is to have my body be taken by the other. But for that to happen I first have to find where the movement originates. Where it is located in my body. Then I have to find the direction. And when I have found that, there is the choice whether to let yourself be taken or whether you keep exerting control. In Alcool I show the play between the two possibilities. In that respect every performance is different....
