Eike Von Stuckenbrok


The Beauty of a Dyslexic Mind (2014)

Those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.
Friedrich Nietzsche




Directed, Filmed & Edited by Anna Piltz & Annikki Heinemann [Oddiseefilms] / Produced by Julia Wilczok / Grading by Dino Fetzer / Sound Design by Clove aka Coutney Rexach / Special thanks for ScontoWhen Eike von Stuckenbrok was 14, he left his German hometown and family to study performance at a circus school. There, at the prestigious National School of Circus Arts in Berlin, Eike learned to combine acrobatics and dance while developing his own unique style of movement—for Eike, the back flip is a multifaceted, signature move filled with artful subtlety. Four days before graduation, he dropped out of the school due to artistic differences. Since then, he has achieved extraordinary finesse, appearing in theatrical performances, television shows. In 2011 he was invited to perform before Queen Elizabeth II. This video follows Eike in a slow-motion Matrix-like dreamscape as he demonstrates his mental and physical control—spinning, inverting, flipping through vacant scenes; a library, a laundry room, a subway car, a basketball court, and a furniture-filled Ikea sales floor contrast his grandiose yet agile movements in what are often static spaces.

At the beginning it was the idea of building a small arts library. And then, little by little, the desire to share it. And then, little by little, the desire to share. Choices, preferences, evidence, all assumed.
To know, to learn, a help to remember. Sometimes.
