Where the boys are

A game. A dance. A fight. A relationship. A performance.

‘Where the Boys Are’ is a playful exploration of where dance meets martial arts. Examining and reconstructing the vocabulary of different fighting practices, the two performers transform the arena into a zone of performance which is sensitive and intimate. Two opposing forces arrive to a match, each wishes to conquer the other, but eventually through continuous rituals of collision their bodies soften. This new vulnerability invites one to discover the other and introduces new ways of touching – with care and support, which often do not exist in relationships between men.
