In her latest work "Distance Between Us" choreographer Jana Jacuka focuses on the fragility of relationships and on the euphoria and codependency created by feelings. Text, alongside movement, has played an important role in her previous works, but this time the body is the main medium. A carousel of emotions weaves throughout the performance, as two people seek closeness and then withdraw once again.

"Distance Between Us" received three nominations of Latvian National Dance Awards: Jana Jacuka was nominated as a ‘Choreographer of the Year’ and both performers – Jana Jacuka and Marģers Vanags – received a nomination as ‘Performers of the Year’. The performance itself received the reward as ‘Best Contemporary Dance Performance of the Year’.

"Distance Between Us" invites the spectator into a series of wonderfully choreographed images and exercises that foreground the relationship between the two performers. Masterfully combining a display of poise and endurance with intimacy, the work gives the audience the tools to feel the emotions, not just to observe them from the sidelines.”
