Suspended Between the Second and the Third Kiss is a choreography dealing with the corporal experience of the individual and the collective in moments that oscillate between intimacy and control. The choreography investigates the relations of power in intimate relationships and dance, and experiments with the limits of the body through movement and sound. This opens for a new spatial, choreographic and sonic experience that interrogates how our bodies perceive, absorb, relate, react, and endure these moments.
