little lives or the body I inhabit.
The goal of the show is absolute synchronization between us. And this effort of the two bodies finally becomes the content and medium of the performance. The viewer is invited to watch not a story with a beginning, middle and end, but two bodies that move, and with the movement they convey their story, their uniqueness.
We aim, I would say, more on motion-sense (it is the feeling that all people have and allows us to perceive the position of our body, our members, our relationship with objects, with space) and less on brain processing. I try to explain as little as possible my intentions for what we made. I would like someone to meet with our work without instructions, to stand up to the innocent.
