The director’s intention
DUAL is an opportunity to see friendship beyond the cliched lenses and, at the same time, the performance represents a form of forever searching for the means of artistic expression. The starting point and inspiration behind the performance were conceptual artists such as Erwin Wurn and Csilla Klenyánszki, but with an added humour twist – that analyses the everyday aspects of human sculptures with fragile balance.
“DUAL, a performance about friendship” finds itself at the intersection of dance-theater, non-verbal theater, and object theater, with a purpose story of artists looking for something: three best friends meet to make a desert together. What seems like a normal and natural evening starts to accelerate with tension that leads to inner questions. The artists start to represent and transpose the opposite of their friendship with the help of different objects from the kitchen. What happens when trust is no longer available? Doubt starts to erode. What happens when trust disappears? Fear is born. “
