The research will focuse on exploration on dichotomies. In the Greek language, ‘dichotomies’ connotes the fact that everything must belong to one part or the other, nothing can simultaneously belong to both parts. Two artists will work on opposites to develop relations between body/sound/dance/music, stillness with motion, chaos with order, contraction with extension. This research is also a further developement of their previous collaboration in 2015.
