Our collaboration was born from a pure and simple friendship. It started as a joke, only to become a real functional and dynamic working collaboration. What makes us unique is the respect for each other’s ideas and thoughts. For us, art is being faithful and respectful to ourselves, and not bowing to the will of other people. When we create and decide to stage something, it is essentially what we like and not what others may like. This first production represents us at 360 degrees, as it is light, dynamic and original. We have worked in such a way as to keep the attention of the public alive, especially by identifying with them, so we aim to take everything to a higher level. Stage presence, movement and facial expressions are important to us. Putting these three elements together we are able to explore without limits and barriers, discovering new feelings and connections between us. We invite any reaction that leads to an exchange of thoughts and ideas, between us and the public. We hope our audience will be surprised, amused and feel totally involved in our storytelling.

Bjarte Wildeman (1998, NL) creates performances and unconventional choreographies with the mechanisms which are found in, and define the Body; and through which the Body relates to the surroundings. He builds and uses choreographic and kinetic apparatuses to highlight and enable these movements. He is intrigued by bodily motion, the physical experience, altering these experiences and biohacking, and researches (mostly) through performance-installations. He recently graduated from the ArtScience Interfaculty at the Royal Academy of Art and Conservatory The Hague. Through his work he aims at inter- and intra-individual sensation, physical awareness and understanding, and developing ways of understanding and altering kinetic experience. He is currently working with expansion through restriction, the cognitive effect of movement systems; Mutualistic and interdependent movements, and the kinetic relationship between the Body, the Apparatus/Environment and Sensemaking.
