Juxtapositioning a famous speech onto contemporary dance...works beautifully.
Too much split-screen...for a dance piece.
The end statement stating that homophobic violence has increased in Germany [since 2018] by 60% needs some explanation...the immigration of homophobic religions and ideologies! That is not a controversial statement, it's true...not just in Germany!

Karl Heinrich Ulrichs (1825-1895), was a lawyer, journalist, publisher, writer, pioneer of sexology and is known as the “first open gay man” and “LGBTQ+”-activist in Germany. His words urging acceptance of same-sex attraction are read and interpreted through dance set to a techno score.
