Two people on stage. Animals? Children? Bodies? The important matter is not what they are but what they do. Passing from all the possibilities that two bodies have playing together, we tell the story of a couple. The circus creates the suspense, not just as performative act but at the service of narration. The music is just the natural noise of two bodies playing. The dance is just connection. Ele&Giu is part of the performance Ah, com’è bello l’Uomo, a work that talks about mindkind’s evolution.
