Sebastian Matthias - XOXO © Thies Rätzke
1. + 2.7.
How does it feel, if someone gets so close that I can feel their breath? Should I stay or should I leave? What does it mean to be close to someone? Uncertainty, excitement and doubt are sometimes counteracting the desire to explore other bodies.
Far away from sexualized images on the internet "XOXO" explores, what it means to desire another body and encourages to exchange feelings in a way freely chosen by each individual.
Three dancers and a musician explore with the viewers body spaces where people communicate with each other, find each other, and discover closeness, individual protected spaces and different forms of intimacy.
