In 2011 Fysalida produced the duet performance “it takes Two to Tango”, first appeared in Heraklion town (island of Crete, Greece) on the 8th of July 2011.
Two contemporary dancers met in order to join their need for communication, expression, movement and motion trough an improvised performance.
The source of their inspiration is Tango. The dancers face the deep emotion and dynamic character that can be expressed through tango as a challenge and an invitation to create a connection between Tango and Contemporary Dance.
The dancers explore the relationship between the female and male, starting with the ‘distance’ of an old fashion way and the shyness involved in it and then developing their ‘couple discussion’ into a stronger more intimate connection trough contact improvisation and contemporary dance.
The romanticism of the old fashion tango stands in front of a modern way of connecting the couple...
Many questions to be answered there!
