Two acrobats, a crackling TV and a coat that comes to life. Acrobatics that require concentration and trust but also the ability to let go of control. The performance is inspired by the artist Lars Agger’s paintings of childhood memories. With a fragmentary narrative similar to those in childhood memories, the title ‘Two’ refers to the art of being in interplay.
