At their work they are questioning the idea of performing through a research about theatrical limits, and manipulating the elements of the “stage equation” (actor / body + space + time + spectator = theatre) Using low tech and precarious methods they create formal games with different narratives, giving to every show a single substance and format, away from tags, always in the middle of visual art, dance and theatre.
