Award winning director and choreographer Laurent Chétouane’s new work is commissioned by the Franco-German initiative Transfabrik. The duo ›M!M‹ with Matthieu Burner and Mikael Marklund explores the term friendship not only from the social perspective of a private intimate relationship between two people but also in reference to its political dimensions.
In dance this implies studying the action of choreography against the background of the concept of friendship and perhaps rethinking fundamental things common to both politics and dance such as questions concerning the boundaries of shared space or the organization of coexistence from a non conflict motivated perspective.
