Performers Alexander Vantournhout and Axel Guérin show their bodies, stripped of all frills.

They are trained, but certainly not perfect. They also do not try to convince with virtuoso movements. Their athletic bodies gradually collide with physical limits, and through the movements, they discover for themselves the strengths and weaknesses of their own physique. With a lot of effort and concentration, the performers look for balance, equilibrium and harmony without shying away from humor. They challenge and help each other and thus alternately lead the dance.

About Alexander Vantournhout

The seventh performance by Alexander Vantournhout is his first real duet after La Rose en Céramique (2018) and Raphael (2017) and builds to a certain extent on ANECKXANDER (2015) in terms of theme. The body is again presented in a very pure form, and the performance further focuses on the creative, kinetic potential of physical limitations, a theme that can be found as a common thread throughout his oeuvre. After the location performance SCREWS (2017), Alexander returns to the theater with partner in crime Axel Guérin, who we previously saw as one of the performers in Red Haired Men (2018).
