In a provocatively slow dance, based on different movement languages such as butoh, yoga, circus acrobatics and rock ‘n’ roll dancing, two people hold on tight to one another. They neither want to nor can let go; after all, two is better than one. There is no absolute meaning, but a recognizability that gives the audience enough room to tie its own feelings, hopes and stories to that which is unfolding before their eyes.

After talk with the coreographer Jan Martens after the performancen April 17  (8.50-9.30 pm).
