Point of You

Anna Réti & Ricardo MachadoPoint of You

Play video

Point of You is a game - for the dancers as much as for the audience. Is this a random collision or a deliberate kick? It depends on where you’re sitting… Instinctive and intricate movement spills between the two performers. Each scene unfolds and teeters between two sometimes conflicting points of view. Laughter is sometimes indistinguishable from tears. This playful debate wonders in a clever and sensitive way: why must we always be right?
