“Since each of us was several, there was already quite a crowd."
Deleuze/Guatarri

Two Body Orchestra is a hydrid concert/dance performance, centering around our bodies as multitudes – as networks of organs, impulses, technologies, and fictions – as orchestras in and of themselves.

We blur the distinctions between bodies and technologies to the point where even very subtle movements – breathing, tiny shifts of posture – influence and create the sound space.

We are balancing on the borders of magic and science, leaving a space for intensity, vulnerability and wonder.
