"Torotörö is a doubly melty sensation on the tongue"

The name embodies a multiplicity of language and a sensory experience.

Fluidity and strength were the departing points of this dance between two beings. The piece breaks expectations of the masculine and the notions of what is fixed, revealing the constant flux of gender, bodies and assumed roles in relation. Kadar and Jussi inhabit vivid intensities of connection, through courageous physicality and surprising tenderness in this choreography of improvisation. Tinkering with touch, Contact Improvisation techniques and limits, we are pulled into their encounters of intimacy and trust through their sublime listening and play.

Islands of rest and risk together with the wheelchair, articulate a hypnotic archipelago of images, evoking liquid, emotive (br)otherhoods.
