ET TOI … is a dance performance piece about space “in between” that sustains the encounter of two people. The intention is to make tangible this invisible entity that connects and encourages an intimate and sensitive contact.


What emerges from this relationship with the Other?


Attraction and tension are unveiled in an energetic transformation of bodies that touch each other





This work was born in a studio of Fine Arts Academy in Brussels where we, Francesca Saraullo and Carolina Van Eps, met in 2013. During our studies in “Choreographic Arts and Art in Public Space” we gave form to our dance performance “Et toi…”. 


From that moment the pièce travelled from the stage (as in HETPALEIS in Antwerpen in Belgium and in SPAZIO MATTA in Pescara in Italy) to the non-theatrical spaces (as well in Palácio Do Sobralinho in Portugal; in the Embassy of Spain in Belgium; in Private Spaces during Festivals as Gentbougement in Gent as well as in the last exhibition in Mallorca during the Hors Lits Festival). 

In the last presentation in Mallorca, in May 2023, we presented our work into a big garden of a private house. Not only could we have and appreciate the intimacy with the audience as an important point of our work, but we reaffirm how much a “quotidian” space has this potential to transform itself into a magic and suggestive stage as theater. 

Even by adding new details to the work or enhancing its content. Parallel, the audience feels more at home and involved into a familiar, cozy and warmly context and we, as performers, can really give a living touch to our work by playing with a real proximity with the spectators that are really closed to us and, an put even more in evidence our complicity and presenting the work in its naked side, vulnerability and fragility that is its strength.
