Doss.uhno is a performance that dialogues between techniques and aesthetics of contemporary dance, clown, and pop action. The piece is enjoyable, dynamic, and physically virtuous without dismissing seriousness and poetics. The two performers navigate through daily life situations of a relationship which set up conventional spaces, and later, disrupt gradually cultural logics of dominance, such as gender and power. Through different states of rarity, absurdity, surreality, and fragmentation, the performers continually create and re-create themselves and the reality. This work is conceived as a collage of situations and emotions that opens space to possibility.
