For her performance HOW IT ENDS, Jelena Kostić examines the phenomenon of tunnel vision. She focuses on people who head straight for a goal with decisiveness and determination, in spite of opposition and pain.

HOW IT ENDS zooms in on the all-or-nothing mentality, the tunnel vision needed to deliver an unprecedented performance. Four dancers populate the playing field. They focus, prepare, mentally shut themselves off from everything that distracts them. Until the moment is there, and all training, sacrifice and pain has to pay off. And what remains after the crucial all-or-nothing moment, after victory or loss? Jelena Kostić uses the body as the ultimate storytelling instrument in a dance language full of contrasts and emotions.

HOW IT ENDS premieres in Theaters Tilburg on March 8th 2020.
