Felix and Bahar keep the spirit of being two individuals consenting on certain ways of relating to each other. Within that relation; they are reinventing themselves and create entangled tales through their re-membered bodies. They meet as equal partners in a playground where two bodies are put in an unfurling state. On M.A.R.S, Felix and Bahar examine the conditions of moving together. As instruments of an atypical score, they navigate from one situation to another with a sense of complicity. While waltzing around the walls of intimacy, they create a playground where one can offer one’s self to the other. They embody animate and inanimate entities, swerve and diverge in order to investigate the gap that divides them, which is an autonomous third element, a force that has its own dynamics and rules. M.A.R.S becomes a way of framing certain rules and obstacles that put Felix and Bahar in friction. They take off from their gendered bodies and seek for a relation that can go beyond narration and become an abstracted emotional landscape.
