Indra Dance Company, present their 2nd large scale piece Been Twice. Indra was founded by Daniel Navarro and Anna Borràs in Barcelona in 2010.
Been Twice displays a a physical debate between two dancers who try to replace each other’s body.
The raw relationship of the two bodies is highlighted by the difficulty of a fighting with a limp body, to bring it to life by any means possible. The audience are subjected to the battle of drawing life back from death. The desire to survive.
When two people form a strong unbreakable connection there is an initial feeling of uncertainty as they leave their original state as two separate bodies. Little by little, they discover that through new experiences and connecting with other individuals, they are able to survive without that all encompassing unity they had being at the beginning. They are no longer united by touch alone but through a special sense of electricity that is precisely the connection they have established from the beginning. It makes them stronger – to the point they can exist thousands of kilometres apart but still feel the connection to each other, tense and electrifying. United in distance between space and time.
