NOT-NOT A LUV DUET

Helge Letonja & Mariko Tanabe

This friendship relies on journeys. The first encounter happened, quite by accident, on a voyage from Europe to America. From two continents, both are ever connected through the dance. Many years later the situation is reversed. There is no way back.

Friendship is ajourney that is shared – not only through unknown territories, but also from one place to another.  Included are the many changing destinations along a crazy winding path.

Is the wind on the sea is imagined or is it a change in the weather? Who knows?

When friends know each other so well, most questions become unnecessary – except perhaps this one: “Where are you?”
