About the performance

The Love Duet is an intimate physical theater performance exposing the subtleties of an evolving relationship. The shy first meeting, playfulness, passion, lust, faith, struggle, rage, sorrow and hope – those are some of the stages you’ll witness in the course of the intense, visually striking 10-minute duet by Katja Tannert and Silent Rocco.

Resonating with audiences

Indoors and outdoors, this play is perfectly suited for audiences of all ages up to 200 people. Provide a quite corner or small stage and let two mimes and their light bulb create an emotional ride that will leave spectators deeply impressed: “You showed all nuances of a 50-year relationship, “You told so much without saying any word”, “I’m moved to tears”, “Not a single wasted second”.
