Their performances ‘How About You?‘ and ‘This Is That‘ have gained critic success and toured worldwide stepping on international stages like The Place in London, Dansens Hus in Stockholm and the Joyce theatre in NewYork.
What is unique about the brothers is that they are always looking for new challenges; traveling and seeing the world is what inspires them the most, and so they are always keen on taking on new experiences either for work or will.
