Time Stretch

In Time Stretch there is a physical theme every day, which Doris and Boris are currently researching on or which has been present in their work in recent years. In extensive improvisations, the studio becomes an experiential space in which personal, deeply embedded patterns of movement and ideas of dance are given the opportunity to transform, to be arranged or rearranged.
