Pieter Ampe and Guilherme Garrido | CAMPO Still Standing You

Martha Graham Studio, 55 Bethune Street MAP

Pieter Ampe and Guilherme Garrido’s raucous, energetic and funny Still Standing You displays the pair’s tumultuous yet intimate relationship as a series of physical interactions. Ampe and Garrido offer a mischievous glimpse into the kaleidoscope of how they connect, revealing it to be complex and fluid: are they friends, lovers, brothers or rivals? From slaps on the back to violent pinches and punches, the pair literally test the strength of their bond, while considering the different associations accompanying touch, tenderness, and violence, and the struggles between the bodies of men. The performance actively investigates the relationship between dance and masculinity, depicting power struggles, playfulness, affectionate moments, and confrontations, and the way in which the social codes of physical interaction become layered with subtext and emotion. The result is an exchange that is hilarious, disturbing, and deeply moving.

Still Standing You is a Performa Premiere. Curated by Lana Wilson.
