Place Prize 2013 winner Riccardo Buscarini and dance artist Runa Kaiser founded The Plusies, a band where dance meets live gig in a lyrical exploration of love and loss.
With "Friends", The Plusies open their cage and let memories fly out with an event in between a dance performance and a rock concert featuring eerie movement and original songs about lost pets and motherhood in a truly pink rock atmosphere.
For "Friends", The Plusies collaborate with composer Domenico Angarano, lighting designer Mickie Mannion and set designer Kishan J. Maynard-Clarke.
