“Are you” is a research and development project about couples life. The couple use visual, physical, and vocal transformations in order to communicate and understand each other. Through absurdity and ridiculousness “Are you” aims to bridge the gap between reality and hallucination. The performance deals with themes such as diversity, loneliness, anger, and sexuality as it stands in a symbiotic relationship.
