The Lonely Room is an enchanting dance theatre duet by Eloise Carles and Flavia Bertram telling the story of two women, each with their own dreams and ambitions, who meet in the in-between of life. This story is inspired by the different sides of our minds: the dreamer and the tactician and the personality clash that happens when the two meet. Blending dance and corporeal mime and accompanied by an atmospheric score by Michael Neo and etherial lights by Andres Velasquez the duo create a timeless world of dreams, hopes, and conflicting desires.
