language no problem
Two performers disrupt the dualism of dominance and submission, confronting their viewers with intimacy and their own responsibility as an audience. Based on the pleasure principle and inspired by animal sounds, they develop their own hybrid body language and perception, imagining non-human relationships. Between tender touches and dark joyous satisfactions the performers discover another logic of solitude and companionship.
