Choreographer: Tony Tran
Country: Norway
Age: for ages 13-18 years
Duration: 45 min


In Jakob, two male performers depart into an intense journey that gradually reveals the destructive intimacy and love between two human beings. Through a playful choreography, the performance investigates why we limit our capacities to open up, support and accept each other. Jakob is the continuation of Tony Tran´s ongoing research on power and identity in human relationships. How does the person we relate to take part in the choices we make? How does this shape our behaviour, our individual actions and how we meet others?
