ACTIONS is a physical conversation between two individuals in empty space. Two outstanding male dancers, Kevin Coquelard and Mufutau Yusuf , merge and break apart - a forceful resistance to merging and the breaking up is the motivation for the movement. The dance material is a battle through the space using physicality, lifts, falls, text and sound with the dancers alternately throwing their bodies together then fragmenting into threads of raw movement. ACTIONS is very funny and tender and human. It is performed as a form of ’work in progress.’ The dancers are engaged in a task of executing difficult and exerting dance but also commenting on the dance, their states of mind.
