What keeps us together? Two performers on stage untie their blindfolds, come together and break away. This gripping duet will make you question the fragile boundary between seduction and exasperation, between love and abuse. As Valtteri Raekallio describes his work as 'an amateur work' in its latin origin ‘amare’, this universal tale of love will take your breath away.

Performers: Mirva Mäkinen & Eero Vesterinen
Music: Richard Skelton, Jacaszek
Production:  Raekallio Corp. / Pohjoinen liike ry
