Jean Abreu, Professor Leon Watts from Bath University and Michele Panegrossi from Jean Abreu Dance will host a talk about the robotic technology and human robot interaction used within “Solo for Two” and present a short excerpt from the piece before previewing their new performance ‘Solo for Two’ later in the evening.
Jean explores the fluid nature of Identity in ‘Solo for Two’ and how loss impacts us. Loss is a consequence of living. We are losing things and people from the moment we are born, it is all part of our evolution as human beings – letting go, progression and transformation. In this new work, Jean interrogates the themes of identity, migration and the increasing impact of technology on our lives.
