Tired of the conventional and safe ways of portraying love & sex in dance and theater - Anh Nguyen, Alice Gosti and Jessica Robinson, have joined forces to draw from the games of their adolescence (i.e. spin the bottle) and the dynamics between the sexual relationships they have had throughout their lifetimes. Creating a theater/dance/performance/experimental/multi-sensorial experience that allows our audience to fall back into their first kiss, the heaviness of losing love, and the thrills of flirting and one-night stands.
