The Artist

“I don’t have stylistic loyalty. That’s why my art is constantly changing. But there is a real continuity in my subject matter. I wan’t to be an artist on the whole; I don’t wan’t to be within a genre and limit my creative output to what i once became known for. I do believe I have more integrity than many of my contemporaries. If need to label my art i would call it Experimental Expressive Urban Dance.

I am expressing what many others can’t – because they’re unaware of their feelings, they’re too afraid to express those feelings, or they lack the skills to communicate and be understood. I am dragging my innermost feelings out, giving a piece of myself. Whatever happens in my life, whether I stand up or I fall down, whatever the case, I’m going to use it in my art. My mission is to share my truth.”

“Frank Döllinger stands out as the most sovereign […]. They [his movements] herald a lust for dance in which the huge question about the same or different simply evaporates. ”
Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (Frankfurt General Newspaper) 2016

“I wanted to be a break dancer with my own language of movement. I believe every movement is beautiful when it’s done with soul. I looked for this quality – for more than 20 years. I have dealt with all sorts of styles and pulled out what I liked. You can see that in my performances. Each one is different. I have everything, music, body, mind and soul, simply melted together according to my taste it just had to feel authentic and awesome.

The hardest part of being an artist is discovering what it is I do differently. I think an artist has always to be out of step with his time. Yet no artist is ahead of his time. He is his time; it is just that others are behind the times.
