In her piece “Distance Between Us” choreographer Jana Jacuka focuses on the fragility of relationships and on the euphoria and co-dependency created by feelings. Text, alongside movement, has played an important role in her previous works, but this time the body is the main medium. A carousel of emotions weaves throughout the performance, as two people seek closeness and then withdraw once again.

"Distance Between Us" invites the spectator into a series of wonderfully choreographed images and exercises that foreground the relationship between the two performers. Masterfully combining a display of poise and endurance with intimacy, the work gives the audience the tools to feel the emotions, not just to observe them from the sidelines.
