Zwei Performer sitzen auf einem roten Sofa in einem weißen, hell ausgeleuchteten Raum.

Two castaways in perpetually changing surroundings, every movement delivering a new transformation – or is everything not what it seems? Does the space move the dancers? Everything is connected to everything else in this Becket-like scenario that dancer Julio César Iglesias Ungo and Helder Seabra devise in their new project. The two figures have arrived at a perpetual circle of development and failure, they depend on each other, yet they only revolve around themselves. The energy they have to expend for their movements will be visible and palpable all over the room. The evening’s only constant will be uncertainty. It applies to all of them in equal measure, to all who enter this malleable space.

Julio César Iglesias Ungo and Helder Seabra were dancers in renowned Belgian choreographer Wim Vandekeybus’ company Ultima Vez. Now, for the first time, they have been collaborating on a duet, accompanied by live musicians Christoph Heinze and Stijn Vanmarsenille. Over the course of the last few years, Julio César Iglesias Ungo already  guested at tanzhaus nrw with his works “Invisible Wires” and “The Hidden Door”. His dynamic dance style is also evident in his choreographed work, among it a great number of commissioned pieces for international ensembles such as Danza Contemporánea de Cuba. They are marked by high physical impact and an experimental dance theatre aesthetic.
