NEVER ODD OR EVEͶ brings to the stage the results of a collaboration between two duos: Filiz Sızanlı & Mustafa Kaplan (Turkey) and Sofia Dias & Vítor Roriz (Portugal). Within each partnership the performers have more than a decade of experience working with each other, and for this project the two duos draw on their shared fascination for precision, minimalism and abstraction.

In NEVER ODD OR EVEͶ, the four explore ideas of duplicity and mirrored relations through wordplay, voice, movement and gesture. Here we find both similarities and differences between each pair and each body, as we consider ideas of continuity and rupture and take a look at the artistic, social and political implications contained in this confrontation, in these dualities.
