Isaac and Ahmed – two names which might lead to misunderstandings or even conjure up notions of conflict. Isaac Spencer and Ahmend Soura, two dancers with different world views and experiences, both shaped by differing religions, skin color and educational backgrounds encounter one another. This seemingly perfect contrasting duo is thrown into a choreographic show down. For their attempt at rapprochement they have their bodies, voices, own truths and colorful assertions at hand.
