Jonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion
Jonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion describe what they do as 'handmade and human-scale'. They build with simple, non-spectacular elements but arrive often at a deceptive virtuosity, radiating delight even as it makes the audience think. Over the past ten years the two have built a body of duets which juxtapose the formality of music composition with a radical and open approach to performance and audiences. They have given nearly 300 performances in 29 countries.
Counting To One Hundred (30 mins)
….at once a homage to and questioning of a way of thinking that has underpinned so much dance and performance in the last thirty years.
‘...a gestural panorama of blatant joy’
One Flute Note (30 mins)
“ a challenging meditation on form and memory, but performed with such a droll tension that it's also a deliciously entertaining kind of dance theatre”.
Judith Mackrell, The Guardian
Jonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion are supported by Kaaitheater Brussels, PACT Zollverein Essen, Sadler's Wells Theatre London and BIT Teatergarsjen Bergen.
