Time for Us

„Time for us“ is a duet by Fabien Prioville and his wife Azusa Seyama who works as a dancer with Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch.

Time for Us concentrates on the experienced moment of two people meeting each other. It is a search for the significance of this moment, an exploration of places of community, the relation of the two dancers on the stage. How do we meet? Where do we come from with all our demands and needs? What connects us?

Fabien Prioville and Azusa Seyama are not only connected through their mutual work for Pina Bausch and Tanztheater Wuppertal, but also through their personal relationship. Thus, “Time for us” also focuses on investigating intimacy, a radical search for closeness, the wish of being together. It is also a confrontation with one´s own history – including the biographical answer as dancers. Both were hugely influenced in their work by the great choreographer Pina Bausch. In their latest piece they also grapple with her legacy. The performance plays with these points of relation and shows two individuals and their wish to leave behind their artistic legacy without dismissing it.
