SCORES THAT SHAPED OUR FRIENDSHIP is about a friendship that defies definitions, a relationship shaped by poetic tendencies and a shared urge for sensuality. On the stage, Lucy Wilke and Paweł Duduś explore the scope of their relationship, bringing to the audience’s attention the themes of closeness, sharing and being together in mutual respect of diversity, taking care of details in a playful sequence of contacts and exchanges that embrace pleasure and pain. Interacting with live music by Kim_Twiddle, the performers paint an intimate portrait in seven chapters: starting from the perception of the self and one’s own body, they unveil its invisible aspects, moving through erotic fantasies and the memories of extravagant parties, creating a world where it is truly possible to be together, beyond the boundaries imposed by our physical bodies. Lucy Wilke and Paweł Duduś deconstruct perceptions that marginalise and discriminate against anything that seems different, questioning the notion of value based on efficiency and capability. The performance defies stereotypes and generally accepted notions, offering the audience a glimpse of utopia, a vision of human interactions prioritising tenderness, honesty and dedication for mutually authentic relationships.
