A men holding a women upside down.

Duet

In this state of fragility, the body searches for itself, in the body of the other. It feels because it is touched, because it is looked at. And so, the body exists. The body exposes the skin and tears it to the inside. Does the body let itself in... weaken itself or does it become stronger? The delicate bodies, which breathe in each other and draw themselves on each other, to the pleasure that lies in fragility... "I don't know what to say. Because every time I open my mouth it's like I'm undressing in front of you for the first time. Like when the mask falls off and your body confesses next to mine. I think about anatomy, like I'm falling, reconstructing the broken pieces of my body, with the exception of love. You dance like a snake changing its skin, like a storm in its brain, my hand looks for you, you give me your hand, you walk, we let out the child in us and then kill them. There's nothing here. I look for myself in you, because the body is only in the eyes of the other and will never recover from the pain." It is a dance performance in which the exposure of the not normalised body, as a parallel of many prejudices that are inside each one of us, create a raw and beautiful language at the same time. The strangeness, the bizarre spectacle that hides the inefficiency of politic identity. We, the others, ableism, normativity and society. How to perpetuate a change in ourselves and in others.
