Body Concert speaks of two individual views on the theme of the sound of the bodies and the search for harmony between them. It is a physical performance where two bodies meet with the question of whether the body has a melody and how the body can be used as an instrument through movement. Searching for a common language, which brings them closer together and, at the same time, creates a distance.
