This isn't gonna end well is a machinery of fictional and real bodies: How do those bodies reveal themselves? Are we all involved in the plot? We see four people… The performance is thought as a succession of moments where the text meets and escapes the choreography and the fiction of the story meets the reality of the performance. In these moments slits and knots pop up, through which the spectators are invited to take a closer look at how movement exists in their perception and how choreography evokes movement as part of perception. Stop motion animation techniques is what informs the choreography - yet, here choreographed bodies almost become animated non-drawn flat images where “inbetweening” opens the space for spectators’ imagination to do the editing. Freeze! Nobody move! What is staged might be a crime, a tragedy or just a lifestyle, and the auditorium the place of the accomplice, spectator or juror. One thing is for sure this isn’t…gonna…end…
