Premiere : February 13, 2016, tanzhaus nrw, Düsseldorf, Germany
Two characters fighting nonsensical battles are matched in a strange dance of confrontation, avoidance, and surrender. Their quirky search for the meaning of life is loosely based on the characters in Italo Calvino’s novella, The Non-Existent Knight.
