The Inevitable and You

The Inevitable and You explores our interpersonal relationships and makes the sheer presence of our being and its power tangible for the audience.

The Inevitable and You looks at how complex, interpersonal relationships evolve amidst the density of life, in an endless chaos. How do deep relationships emerge in the opacity and diversity of daily communication? What existential challenges, instincts, and fears influence our togetherness?
Despite highly complex social networks, listening and empathizing are as arduous today as they have always been. Establishing a relationship means taking long-term responsibility, demonstrating courage and perseverance, and not being afraid - of both emotional intimacy and distance.

The dance in The Inevitable and You is the medium of this inner struggle of being in relationship. The piece unfolds in a continuous flow of movement, a dynamic, choreographic architecture that never comes to a halt. One movement initiates the next; instinctively, the dancers respond to each other, creating an atmosphere of never-ending intensity.
