with Toni Schmale and Julia Kolbus

A couple dances extremely slowly, holding each other tightly without music in a bare room. What appears to be the beginning of a love scene, leaving you full of expectations for what's to come, is all there is to see. The deceleration of what usually happens, the ambiguity of the protagonists' gender definition, and the austerity and unplaceability of the room's atmosphere keeps you in suspense. Familiar images of love are presented in unfamiliar ways and evoke different perceptions of intimacy. (Doris Guth)
