In the performance Jukebox Dancer, Kilian challenges labels and categories and explores his desire for being more than just one expression of himself. The audience is invited to push buttons that activate various short acts, from disco queen to rock star, from shy stripper to childhood idol, and from improvisation artist to virtuos ballet dancer. Trapped in a glass box, Kilian offers the audience bite-size performances on demand and goes all out in his role as entertainer. The Solo criticises simple categorisation and consumerism and at the same time celebrates the colourful existence and endless creativity of humanity.
