Year of creation : 2020

Duration : 60 min

2 dancers

Only You – meaning "alone with oneself" as much as "feeling alone when I'm with you"–, is an exploration of everything that brings us together or separates us from one another. In a quest towards understanding, acceptance and honesty, its protagonists gradually remove invisible veils between each other to unmask the truth. In a landscape of brambles and thorns, while searching for roots that once were, one will encounter hassle and pitfalls, as well as the fundamental pulse to keep on moving.


Between fortitude and vulnerability, abandonment and momentum, a certainty emerges: one's true self is one's own to find.
