    29:th of may 19.00
    30:th of may 20.00

    The showing is free of charge

    At the moment there´s a lecture, a performance lecture with two bodies, two people, two languages that attempt banal, super-complex, inward-acting, unconscious production that at times cries out to the observer. Crying out pieces of language we understand we have seen before, but cannot bring together. Possibly what we are seeking is a language that the audience cannot reduce. Within this lecture-performance which is the context of this early showing, we will try to talk about this as well as doing it. Finding ways for us to speak and dance thematically the concepts that Language fools addresses.
