Bahar Temiz (TR): Zee

Zee* is a dance piece on walking in which the two performers find themselves in a continuous conversation. They go through physical, emotional and mental landscapes. This ongoing concentration simultaneously connects and isolates them in their solitude. Zee is a meditation on togetherness and on how these negotiations define and divide individuals. The moment we are with one or many people, time weaves bonds between the solitudes of each and unites us in solidarity. The connection to one’s self, the other and the world intensifies and provides a sensation of change, transformation and revolution.

* Zee, in dutch, means body of water, sea, ocean.
