A little too close is the first part of an ongoing study on power and control. This duet takes place inside the line between two sides of a relationship. For better and for worse, there is a layered cycle of patterns in our relationships. We need structure and control for clarity but this can easily become abusive and destructive. There is a fine line between healthy structures and horrifying abuses of power. Can we find this fine line?
‘This performance is a visual experience that takes you on a journey. The performers battle with communication in an endless search for harmony. This work hits home on many levels; from the familiarity of the music and simple composition to conceptual depth and emotional confrontation. Everybody can identify with the performers’ drive to never give up on one another.’ - Edan Gorlicki
‘One of the most convincing aspects… is the way he leads us to evolve from being passive spectators to conscious participants.’ – LandEscape
