At the beginning, there were real people – workshop participants – and their letters to their acquaintances. In the letters, they shared what burdened their hearts or expressed important things they didn’t have a chance to tell their dearest. Individual voices of the writers are intertwined, layered, mingled. This polyphony of authentic confessions that are processed by the verbatim method into one text invite the dancer to enter the dialogue. The dancer acknowledges weakness and by expressing it creates a momentum in which he balances between rejection and reconciliation. He tries to understand what gives us direction in our lives, he discovers internal space of a man…

Kubuk Danza / David Guerra (ES): Outline
A duet of Spanish artists reduces the body to an architectural element, which in paired constellation loses its axis and therefore safe vertical. The demanding and precise dynamics of their joint movement are anchored in the solid support of one body on another, in maximum concentration and mutual trust. At first glance the formal geometric concept induces profound theme of inner harmony, mutual trust, support and communion. Two human beings – each cannot exist without the other. The precisely calculated choreography, in which every centimetre counts, is the antithesis of improvisational dance projects.
