Sorry, you missed this event, SIGN UP to get information on our forthcoming shows

In this joyous duet the performers use slapstick theatricality and precise choreography to present friendship as a game as well as a duel. 

Perceptions are challenged as extreme physicality and strict movement codes intertwine to reveal the price and pleasure of becoming an object. 

Age recommendation: 7+

Andrea Costanzo Martini was born and raised in Italy where he received his first education in contemporary dance and ballet. After few years in Germany where he danced with the Aalto Theater Essen, he moved to Tel Aviv to Join the Batsheva Young Ensemble and later the Batsheva Dance Company. Between 2010 and 2014 he danced with the Cullberg Ballet and the Inbal Pinto and A. Pollack Dance Company. Since 2013 he is creating and performing his own works. He
received the first prize for dance and Choreography at the International Tanz Solo Competition in Stuttgart 2013 and was awarded several prizes for the two solo works What Happened in Torino and Occhio di Bue.

Andrea’s research in dance focuses in both extreme physicality and theatricality of the performance act and explores the power balance that is created during a show between the dancers and the spectators. Always filled with humour and supported by a wide range of skills, Martini’s work questions and plays with the expectations of the dance medium.
