Dancing in the Club

Dancing in the Club is a short musical love story set in the bowels of a fictitious Berlin discotheque.

Hans Hoch, dance enthusiast, awaits the arrival of his best friend Richter as he clubs his way through 1990s American movie-themed rooms and ridiculous throwback German hipsters searching for the one girl who has what it takes to become his partner.

Director’s statement

Alek Rzeszowski says:

Dancing in the Club explores the mysterious world of German nightclub culture. At its core it is a man’s journey of obsession with finding love on the only terms he understands – through dance – a language in which he is a fluent and discriminating elitist. Hans knows just how to dance.”
