Jean Abreu Dance presents:
Two dancers, two sides of the same coin, are caught in a struggle to find their place in the world. A little robot called ‘Macheba’ joins them on stage as an interactive witness to their battle for survival and a new identity, scanning the dancers’ memories and projecting their feelings.
With the use of robotics in Solo for Two , Jean Abreu explores the challenges of technology in his new work, focusing on how a migratory identity is created by cycles of loss, letting go and new beginnings.
The British-Brazilian choreographer has spent half his life in Brazil and the other half in Britain. The powerful duet explores this dual identity, formed in-between different cultures and dance languages.
