Kobalt Works


i!2 is a duo performed by Melanie Lane and Lisbeth Gruwez. The performance investigates individuality, singularity and freedom within a powerful digital environment and in relation to the other person, the other body: the partner, the lover, the stranger - all that can depict the “other”.
