For an extraordinary pas de deux, Through the Grapevine is the place to be.
Two men, two performers, Alexander Vantournhout and Axel Guérin show their bodies, stripped of any frills. Trained, but certainly not perfect. The duo does not try to convince you with virtuosic movements.
Gradually their athletic bodies collide with physical limits and through the movements they discover for themselves the strengths and weaknesses of their own specific physiques. The choreography plays with these different proportions and physical strength. Alexander and Axel search with great effort and concentration together for balance, equilibrium and harmony without shying away from humor. They challenge and help each other, alternately leading the dance. Through uninterrupted mutual contact, the intertwining of touching and being touched unfolds like the basic melody of the performance.
The body is again presented in a very pure form and the performance further focuses on the creative, kinetic potential of physical limitations, a theme that can be found as a common thread throughout his oeuvre. After the location performance “SCREWS,” Alexander once again dives into the theater, with partner in crime Axel Guérin, whom we previously saw as one of the performers in “Red Haired Men.
