Production Details / Press Releases
Two women, one oversized pullover, that lets individual shapes disappear and new sculptures emerge. The contours get distorted until the personal limit – me and you get blurry, are being questioned. Between heteronomy and autonomy the dancers move through stage space. To what extend does closeness create comfort and when individuality has to take its place in order to create room for personal growth? On the search for a physical expression for this negotiating, the pullover functions as a straitjacket and protective coat. The dancers maneuver along side the point of where their connection is still just intact. Strongest possible cooperation versus individuality.
