Unending love, or love dies, on repeat like it’s endless is a choreography that reflects on the relations of desire, dance, fragmentation, love (as communality), loss and time.

Through gesture, sensuality, touch and relationality, Baczynski-Jenkins’ practice unfolds structures and politics of desire. Relationality is present in the dialogical ways in which the work is developed and performed as well as in the materials and poetics it invokes. This includes tracing relations between sensation and sociality, embodied expression and alienation, the textures of everyday experience, the utopian and latent queer histories. He approaches choreography as a way of reflecting on the matter of feeling, perception and collective emergence, while indulging in other ways of experiencing memory, time and change.
