The two performers represents new patterns of relationships in today’s society through the formality of dance, using various styles on their way to meet one another. These situations are often comic, absurd and are weighed down by many external difficulties, just as in real life for the young generation.
In the various attempts to connect during the performance, humor and irony serve as a tool to reflect on the rhythmical and personal differences between the two dancers. The wide range of dance languages displayed, represent a specific era in the past and present such as folk dance, disco, techno, twerk, hip-hop and even styles that represent more narrow groups, such as hardcore dance.
These different elements are paired with a musical score composited with the help of Áron Porteleki.
The piece won the Rudolf Laban-prize in 2019.
