Other dancers may be on the floor / Dear, but my eyes will see only you.

Dean Martin

Two dancers of two generations. But SEE ME! attaches no importance to the age distinction. The duet by Tomas Bünger and Sergey Zhukov does not seek a divide or even competition, but an interested approach. “See me!”, the title says, as if someone were asking for attention. The dancers show facets of themselves, preferences. This strikes a chord in the other person, something like agreement, yes, me too, but a little differently; and a togetherness emerges. A not-being-alone. A living room with an armchair, sofa and lamps is enough for their little shows. As if they were spending a quiet evening and had an infinite amount of time. Music is played, music of longing. No television. So the images remain their own. With the clothes they wear, the trousers and pumps, with tumbling around, drifting, floating, with falls, too, and with flights.

TOMAS BÜNGER, co-founder of TanzKollektivBremen, was a long-time member of the Tanztheater Bremen. SERGEY ZHUKOV from Kazakhstan studied at the Folkwang Hochschule in Essen and danced as a guest with the Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch, among others. In 2021, the two began to research the topic of queer identity with means of dance and choreography. SEE ME! had its premiere in early 2022.
