About this show

A rigorous and sharply funny performance for two sitting men. Taking as their starting point the idea that 'counterpoint assumes a love between the parts', both artists, Jonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion, set out to explore the borderline between dance and music, in a delicate game of giving and taking. Seated on two chairs, with their scores open at their feet, they embark on a precisely timed and intricate conversation for fingers, hands and arms. Performed in complete silence, Both Sitting Duet is a duet of mundane gestures, in which each knowing glance or creak of the chairs assumes an unprecedented significance.
