Still Standing You
Part of Out There 2015
“To say that this contemporary dance piece is memorable is an understatement: You can’t forget watching two naked men manipulate each other’s penises in a game of one-upmanship.” —Globe and Mail (Toronto)
Using their bodies as instruments, this Belgian-Portuguese duo explores the lines between play, tenderness, slapstick, and violence in this acclaimed performance art/dance work. Sometimes seeming to be friends or brothers, other times perhaps lovers or even strangers, Pieter Ampe and Guilherme Garrido set in motion rough-and-tumble choreography that travels from masculine movement duets to gymnastics and wrestling to violent strokes of a leather belt and beyond. Yet humor and humanity shine throughout, as the duo achieves a delicate balance between pain and physical joy. Note: Performance contains nudity.
