In the beginning of our creative process we intentionally didn’t determine the topic of our future piece. Letting the body find its own interest in the movement, we then exchanged the material with each other and found the idea, which became sort of a visual and emotional key to the subsequent development of the plastic form. Without articulating the idea, we would like to give the viewer maximum freedom to perceive the action in the way that is most meaningful to them.
The phrases you'll hear in the performance: „You have to pull yourself together. No need to hold on. You have to let go.“

Working together in Benno Voorham (Sweden) projects, Inna and Daniil discovered the affinity of their professional curiosity. The similarity was most prominent in their individual dance patterns and research interest. The project In Four Hands” became the result of their first collaboration.
