An investigation into the limits between the body and the world. Right on the verge of this contact the relation between individual identity and the others is being enacted and reconfigured constantly. Considering space as the only independent variable and movement as a constant factor, “Verge” examines how space can modify intention and the way in which things are being addressed; it also examines by extension how various spatial relations can affect the very nature of action and the relation between the two performers so that a series of new and unpredictable ways of coexistence are being energized.
