The THE VERY DELICIOUS PIECE is first and foremost a search for the long lost essentially, intensity and insistency. It is a limbo meeting between entertainment, a personal experience in two and how our own vibrant transformation reaches a still audience.
Shaking is the physical expression of love - a default state. Banality is common to all... The music is an external layer of memorable “rituals”. Two glowing bodies radiating 360º, exposed but detached, induce meaning through the eyes of the viewer into relationships that physically deform us and make us addicts to drama.
This is not a love story!

Cristina and Jasmina both graduated in 2006 from Dutch academies for arts (Dance Performance from Artez – Arnhem Dansacademie & De Theaterschool - School for New Dance Development, Amsterdam). In 2010 they were both invited to be part of the project “50 days in Costa Rica” with David Zambrano, where they acquired the necessary qualifications to teach, use and renew the techniques of "Flying Low" and "Passing Through”.
They never met in Holland while their study, but they shared many ideas in the common bathroom in Costa Rica. Out of this intimate exchanges came »The Very Delicious Piece« and after also their second production »The Very Boring Piece«. At the moment both performances are in the proccess of touring. The nostalgia for the common future keeps them together.
