Taiwan Season: Together Alone (Zoltán Vakulya, Chen-Wei Lee x ART B&B)

By | Published on Tuesday 15 August 2017

A dance of life and love, ‘Together Alone’ explores the intimacies of living with another person and how our bodies react to ‘coupling’. As the audience filters in two performers take to the stage, their naked bodies following each other around, slowly at first but building up pace until the audience is fully seated. Mesmerising elements of movement explore the ways in which we can help each other, as well as the ways we push against one another. The performers are completely alone on the empty stage, their bodies and movements the only thing to engage us in this 45-minute performance, but they are in themselves completely captivating. Grounded within the constant changing of relationships, ‘Together Alone’ is a joy to behold.

Dance Base, until 27 Aug.
