Eleanor Sikorski & Alberto Ruiz Soler
Eleanor and Alberto are pretty cynical when it comes to love. Consequently, their first sweaty collaboration has ended up being precisely about that. Using each other to re-tell their own romances, they push each other towards physical exhaustion. By revealing their personal failings and embarrassments, they touch upon a very universal experience – relishing both the mundane tale and the agonising heartbreak. They expose the absurdity of the ‘love story’, tying themselves up in knots and bruising each other in the process.
