Performance: Toni Schmale, 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 and leaves you full of expectations of what is 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 rooms atmosphere keeps you in suspense. Familiar images of love are presented in unfamiliar ways and evoke different perceptions of intimacy. (Doris Guth)
