Beatrix and Jenna were born in isolated European countries. They have the same amount of muscles and bones. They are movers, acrobats, both comfortable with steam and water.
Blonde and brunette. Nordic and Central European. One’s ancestors lived under the Turkish empire, the other under the Swedish rule. One drinks pálinka and the other koskenkorva. Almost sisters. Not quite.
Long Time No See! is a playful performance by a Hamburg-based Hungarian and Brussels-based Finn exploring the curious and familiar aspects of two distinct cultures.
