With lots of humor and a good portion of irony, two dancers provide insight in their inner emotional world and thoughts. They challenge each other, dissect and analyze the “sub”-text and “con”-text of each individual movement – and surprise us with the fact that this inner world most often has nothing to do with the performance we actually get to see.

“It's been a long time that a piece has come along in such a humorous and amusing way. Subtexten is like an ironical essay about the artwork of dance and its artistic accidents.” (Thomas Linden, Kölner Rundschau)
