Nina Simone, the banana, the whipped cream and the missing black chocolate (2011)

Two choreographer-dancers, one from Switzerland and one from Slovenia, met in Amsterdam in 2009 during the Artist Lab. Actually they know very little about each other. They have come together simply as two names echoing the name of a famous songstress who may have very little to do with them. But the laughter of one another, an initial impetus and a curiosity to find out the ABOUT has simply made them come together to search for NINA SIMONE!
