Accompanying program

We kindly invite our audience to the POINT OF YOU meeting after the show to discuss thoughts and feelings! Organized by Thought Generator.


Everything in life exists thanks to energy waves. These vibrations create the rhythms that drive us and make our hearts beat. We share the same pace, the same pulse, we are connected through movement and touch. But what happens when the “beat” disappears? 

Here is Jenna and here is Jonas, a contemporary dancer and a b-boy. Both physically trained to master techniques and control over their bodies. Together they are decoding the skilled and disciplined body into a new way of movement and partnering. The active and the passive. The manipulator and the manipulated one. “The living-body” and “the dead-body”. 

The sound artist Adrian Newgent joins them on stage, composing live soundscape in dialog with the dancers. The result is an incredibly physical, raw, yet intimate and touching duet about human relations.

"A két duó testet, szellemet és lelket egyaránt bekapcsol. Nem csoda, hogy olykor a mi légzésünk is fokozódik vagy a lábunk bizsereg. Ahogyan az sem csoda, hogy mindkét tánc előadást állva, vastapssal jutalmazta a közönség."

“Mindig is inspirált bennünket az urban dance világa"

"Jenna Jalonen és partnere, Jonas Garrido Verwerft saját határaik kitolásával tolja ki a másik határait a BEAT ‘I just wish to feel you’-ban..."
