Time Out says

Direction, choreography and performance: Antonio Ruz, Juan Kriz Díaz de Garaio Esnaola. Musical arrangements: Juan Kriz Díaz de Garaio Esnaola.

The two choreographers and performers become each other’s instrument and driving force, in respective independent solos in which they swap the roles of director and performer. Each solo feeds off the other, like a network of infinite positive and negative poles. With extreme austerity of resources, stripped of any musical theme or scenery, Antonio will direct Juan Kruz in a solo where the body becomes an emotional catalyst and means of expression: an ode to that global body, addictive and addicted to movement and dance, free of any narcissism. The voice is at the centre of Antonio’s solo, directed by Juan Kruz. An eclectic and diverse repertoire mixing songs from different times and in different styles, arranged by Juan Kruz and sung live by Antonio, addresses themes of uprooting, exile, farewells and longing through a nomadic, defenceless character. Using a limited choreographic vocabulary, here too the body keeps its integrity as an expressive and narrative tool.
