Two theatre makers and performers presenting a work-in-progress performance of their devised work. They have spent the past year training in physical theatre together at LISPA/Arthaus in Berlin in collaboration with the Rose Burford College in London. Both performers explore in their work what the 'I' is and how we construct it in society. How do we form and hold an identity? Adopting a poetic and embodied theatrical language, they will each present solo performances as a culmination of their MA studies.
