Linda Granfors and Aura Hakuri, who have been working together since 2001, have honed their collective expression over time to create a unique style of performance art that is both reverent and playful. Their work explores the boundary between play and reality, as well as the collision between the absurd and the realistic. Linda&Aura’s performances leave behind thought-provoking questions that viewers may ponder for some time, while also remaining vivid in the memory as fascinating visual experiences.

The Window is a 30 square metre white glass box situated in the heart of the 10th arrondissement in Paris. Directed by choreographer and performer Catherine Baÿ, The Window provides a space for research and meetings that aims to be accessible to all tracks of reflection on new ways of living. It offers residencies to artists and researchers from diverse backgrounds.
