• About
    Two men are trapped in an endless and absurd world. Depending on each other, they try to make something of it. In an exhausting tour de force, without any physical restraint, the men drag and drop each other on and off a structure of practical cables. Ruthless and tender at the same time. The Place to Be is a physical and visual performance about the dabbling of man. What if everything is meaningless, can we still make something of it? In their attempt to find meaning and the right to exist, the performers explore the limits of the body. Rolling, jumping and running, they pull each other through time.
