Germany, 2019, 13 min
Young ballet dancers – not necessarily the typical poster children of ballet school – comment their training with quotes from known personalities ranging from Kim Kardashian or Therese of Avila to Mikhail Baryschnikov. Taking the body politics and the fate of children in ballet as a starting point, the film raises issues going beyond the dance world.
