How close is it possible to get to one an·other?
What about the touch of hair/fur in dance?

Based on the Eurasian practice of bear dances, from ritual to spectacle,
choreographer Thomas Körtvélyessy explores and tries out

mixing pop-culture, Gay Bear culture, and Béla Bartók,
in an ongoing conversation with the present audience
