Connected through a mechanical structure, two performers find each other, sensing the other’s body and movement in a state of distanced intimacy. The performers continuously attempt to find a balance between themselves, surrendering to themselves and the other, leaning on and trusting in each other. They save, move and hold one another, but at what cost for themselves?
The performance explores what attachment means: the fear of control, leaning into/onto each other and trust, in a struggle of intimacy. Inspired by Queer experiences of morphing, adapting and opening yourself, the performance exists as a moving installation which suspends two performers. By moving together, not alone, they continuously transform the installation’s shape, yet each changing form also manipulates the individuals, their body, movements and their relationship between power and care.
