Benny Claessens & Risto Kübar

Spectacular Lightshows of Which U Don’t See the Effect

Focus: Privacy


135min (incl. intermission)

A room in Tallinn, Paris, Berlin or Munich. Somewhere in Europe. A place that becomes a functional framework for meeting, for moving, for tracing, for touching, for gazing. The meticulous convergence takes place through the body, since there’s no common native language. Without a word, Risto Kübar and Benny Claessens become each other’s tool, unravelling each other’s disorientation.
