“There is nothing in the world so unstable and distorted as the base instincts - the originators of our life. They bring dynamics and unexpectedness to our lives. They dwell somewhere inside our bodies and control it, in spite of us trying to hide this fact. The base instincts form our movement.”


The duet Metamorphic draws its inspiration freely from the artistic work of the sculptor August Rodin who shaped his sculptures fascinated by the human being, nature and dance. His way of depicting and dramatization of human body served the duet artists as a source of movement.
