BEAT ‘I just wish to feel you’

BEAT ‘I just wish to feel you’ - Port of Dance

Everything in life exists thanks to energy waves. These vibrations create the rhythms that drive us and make our hearts beat. We share the same pace, the same pulse, we are connected through movement and touch. But what happens when the “beat” disappears? 

Here is Jenna and here is Jonas. A contemporary dancer and a b-boy, who decode the skilled and disciplined body into a new way of movement and partnering. The active and the passive. The manipulator and the manipulated one. “The living-body” and “the dead-body”. 

The sound artist Adrian Newgent joins them on stage composing live soundscape in dialogue with the dancers. BEAT ‘I just wish to feel you’ is an incredibly physical, raw, yet intimate and touching duet about human relations.
