Sweat Baby Sweat

Choreography: Jan Martens

“As long as you are here, I am too”. The phrase resounds throughout the room. And so an intimate duet unfolds, an acrobatic balancing act between a couple that cannot let go of each other and literally hang on to what they have. Their bodies are constantly entwined and linked in slow, tender caresses. Sometimes sweating, sometimes trembling – releasing each other is not an option. “sweat baby sweat” is a symbiosis of story telling and abstraction. Projected texts and a soundtrack underscore the composition of movement. A simple intimate hour full of rich emotions.
