"POST SIMPLE TENSE"

Post_simple_tense_promo_copyright.jpg
This piece is made in a form of a constant dialogue between dancer and musician. During the dialogue they explore the essence of transformation. Both artists avoid to hold any certain form of dance or music, but instead allow them to appear and disappear constantly. This performance is about a place of unknown which is inside each process of creation. It is about simplicity and complexity which can be found there.
