in\TWO SOLOS by Jorge Morro and Norbert Servos
D: Zwei Soli zum gleichen Thema: die Angst vor dem Alleinsein, dem Verlassenwerden. Einmal aus weiblicher, einmal aus männlicher Sicht. Was beiden gemeinsam ist: Sie müssen ihr altes Ich überwinden, um einen neuen Anfang zu finden. In ihrer Verzweiflung flüchten die Darsteller in immer neue Situationen: ein imaginäres Speed Dating ohne Gegenüber, das Erträumen des idealen Partners, die Zerstörung des Brautkleids der Ex-Frau ' aus Rache für's Verlassenwerden. Scheitern als Chance.
E: If you were used to think in a unity of two you have to recreate yourself as a single person. Two dance solos with the same subject: the fear of loneliness ' from a female and from a male perspective. But man and woman have one thing in common: They have to overcome their ego in order to find a new beginning. In their desperation they try out whatever promises a way out of the disaster: an imaginary speed dating, dreaming of an ideal partner, a firework of virtuosity. But at the end nothing works. Failing as chance.

A woman in a space alone, perhaps in a hotel room where she used to meet her partner. He doesn't appear any longer but she keeps coming back to this room again and again until she is not able to leave anymore. She finds herself trapped like an animal, not being able to move, not finding the way out. She is lost in her memories, dreams, sometimes nightmares. The only way to free herself is taking a close look to her inside. The piece tells her story, exploring her emotional landscapes. She is running away from her own shadow. Trying to be somebody else. Creating her perfect partner. She imagines to go to a speed dating, but there is nobody answering her. She faces her actual situation. Some places never let you go. The piece talks about how we leave and how we are left at the same time. Running faster and faster she managed to stop time. She is timeless ... the only thing left is her strong breathing. With her breath she recreates herself new ... Light!
