Description of the performance

A Couple of Humans is a performance that combines physical and visual theater, reflecting on humanity from the perspectives of encounter, communication, and interaction.

It’s important to pay attention to the most important things first, and what other people do is often the most important thing. From the grassroots level, the relationship between people determines the form and structure of society. On the other hand, detection and identification are uncertain; people may be our best friends or our worst enemies. People are to blame for everything by default.

So who am I? Who are we together?
