In the solo dance piece ORGANISATION, Leuenberger tries to escape from a looming midlife crisis which threatens his career and self-confidence. Faced with too many possibilities and a lack of decision-making capacity, he submits himself to a precise rhythm and goes on to repeat it relentlessly like a Swiss clock.
In his search for stability and order, the performer finds both self-evident and absurd means to translate the rhythm into choreography, using specific forms and expressive outlets borrowed from German Ausdruckstanz, yoga and yodelling.
