Exploring connections and disconnections between two, not necessary gender-specific, bodies, True Romance focuses on body rituals in order to piece together a possibility of an enactment of praise of life and love through (what might be termed) the raw masculine energy. 

Collaborating with dancers Fernando Belfiore and Peter Peter de Vuyst, Matej Kejžar succeeded in develping a highly energetic piece of choreography on the notion of masculinity that doesn’t shy away from emotions and humour.
