Speed Dating is inspired from the eponym text of German theater writer Falk Richter. Two persons are standing facing each other, a space between them. They hold each other through their presence. Despite the gap and the power they mobilize to be here, they are light and playful. Gently yet firmly, their energy transforms the whole space making it tangible for everybody around. Their situation reveals the architecture and alive space as the architecture reveals their situation. The string they share and hold tight reveals the subtle of their movements as it is the fetish of their relation, and the fetish of our perception. “I focused in his eyes and then I did not see anything behind the mask. The space was impregnated with silence. The time was essential” Eidglas Xavier, performer.
