Jonathan Burrows, dancer and choreographer. Matteo Fargion, musician and composer. For the past decade, these gentlemen of note have been making duets that have acquired a legendary status. In their playful but rigidly composed miniatures, they combine dance, music, comedy and performance art. Always the two of them … but not this time!

For their performances in Oslo, they have invited four local artists, Janne Mikkelsen, Roza Moshtagi, Ingunn Rimestad and Thomas Prestø to join them onstage. Using 72 clay objects created by the performers, group singing and Indian drone sounds on smartphones to address “the possibility and impossibility of community” and “how we can retain our autonomy and yet continue to be part of the group,”  Any Table Any Room is a collective journey that explores the pleasures and challenges of being and working together.
