Three couples, interwoven sexual relationships and a dream of desire and dependency. Dancers’ bodies fall under the pressure of each other, bearing testimony to passion, dynamics and the intensity of relationships. Brought to you by DOT504, the first fully professional physical dance theatre company in the Czech Republic, this performance combines contemporary physical dance and theatrical forms.

The critically acclaimed show was successfully performed in the Czech Republic, Warsaw, Athens, Bratislava, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and at the dance-fair Tanzmesse in Düsseldorf, Germany.

‘The writhing dancers travel, serpentine and horizontal across the floor, coupling and recoupling, while petting and eroticised play becomes violent, constrictive mauling and the private agonies of those spurned.’
