Two dancers of two generations. But SEE ME! does not care about age distinction. The duet by Tomas Bünger and Sergey Zhukov does not seek a divide or even competition, but an interested approach. “Look at me!”, the title says, as if someone were asking for attention. The dancers show facets of themselves, their preferences. This strikes a chord in the other person, something like agreement – yes, me too, but a little differently; and a coexistence emerges. A feeling of not being alone. A living room with an armchair, sofa and lamps areenough for their little shows. As if they were spending a quiet evening and had an infinite amount of time. Music is played, music of longing. No television. So the images remain their own. With the clothes they wear, the trousers and pumps, with tumbling around, drifting, floating, with falls, too, and with flights.


TOMAS BÜNGER, co-founder of TanzKollektivBremen, was a long-time member of Tanztheater Bremen. SERGEY ZHUKOV from Kazakhstan studied in Essen at the Folkwang Hochschule and danced as a guest with the Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch, among others. In 2021, the two began to research the topic of queer identity in dance-choreografisch. SEE ME! premiered in early 2022.


The team of the German Dance Film Institute Bremen documented the performance.
