"Sometimes you need someone to stop you."

d r i v e  explores dialogues between "bodied" spaces of two individuals, scanning for a bridge between
the personal and the shared, the self and the Others. The performance investigates diverse modes of
correlation, experienced subjectivities between two persons, shifting orientations between self, place
and other. Two performers play with the constraints of mutually made agreements.
They negotiate, manipulate and navigate rhythms and pathways in space.
An abstract narrative unfolds within the fluctuating tension between surrender and withholding.
The complexity of confining oneself can collide with the challenges of desire for unity.
In interaction with the Other the experience of difference-from-the-other coincides with that of
similarity-with-the-other. A rotating process develops as the performers exchange roles.
The audience is invited to witness moments of shared spaces in which intimacy and distance alternate.
