You, the other is a performance for two performers that questions the phenomenon of encounter.

What happens when two persons meet?
Why do certain encounters leave traces?
When does a ‘starting point‘ become a ‘turning point‘?
To what extent can I see myself in my counterpart and vice versa?
Am I the mirror of the other, is the other my mirror?
To what extent the audience can see themselves within us?
The audience witnesses this encounter in its physical and emotional intensity.
I want to open a realm of experience that gives the possibility to question the perception of the outside world and of oneself.Enabled by augmented mobility and new means of communication our times are characterized by encounters more than ever.Encounters and the exchange that happens within are the key point for change, development and innovation.
