Solo for Two - Portsmouth Guildhall - Portsmouth Guildhall - Portsmouth

In the Guildhall StudioTwo dancers, two sides of the same coin, are caught in a struggle to find their place in the world. A little robot called ‘Macheba’ joins them on stage as an interactive witness to their battle for survival and a new identity, scanning the dancers’ memories and projecting their feelings.With the use of robotics in Solo for Two, Jean Abreu explores the challenges of technology in his new work, focusing on how a migratory identity is created by cycles of loss, letting go and new beginnings. The British-Brazilian choreographer has spent half his life in Brazil and the other half in Britain. The powerful duet explores this dual identity, formed in-between different cultures and dance languages.
