Two years since their last production Lucy. tutorial for a ritual, the collaboration between Martha Pasakopoulou and Aris Papadopoulos is in its essence put under the microscope and is examined as an attempt to perform friendship on stage. The two interpreters, but also friends, collaborators and artistic partners, delve into a common archive of movement material, dance practices and notes, which while drawing from the past is being constructed on stage. In the process of finding out what really matters, they re-shape it, reintroduce themselves and bring to surface that intangible in-between space. “The property of neither, the potentiality of both”. The audience is present as yet another viewpoint, a reflector of the duo’s friendship and its need to be witnessed.
