Martijn and Tim
stand on stage, where they try to reach each other with each other's help.
They need each other, support each other, they trip each other up, they play games, push and pull, sometimes stand still for too long.
They meet each other, over and over again.
are you close is a meticulous dance for two figures in which they sometimes move together, other times apart. Martijn and Tim conduct a dialogue with their bodies, practice moving together. Cautiously, they explore the boundaries of their own desires and dependence. Who are they for each other? What do they want from each other? And is that in fact the same?
