Production Details / Press Releases

This performance rejects the notion of a personality as being something monolithic, independent, as something that is predetermined and stable. Rather, it aims to provide the conditions to let the term “I” emerge and play with the idea that one body is able to contain and experience different personalities and also experience different “bodies” that these personalities create.

By engaging the body into unfamiliar physical positions, intentions and movements one is able to perceive other ways of what this body can be. The situation of the duet creates a landscape of two bodies sharing impulses and stimuli. Through the perception of qualities such as atmosphere, energy and form of the other body – and the work with these qualities one body influences the other and challenges it to move out of it’s stable position. The piece is therefore continuously depending on the awareness and the intention of movement of the performers from moment to moment.
