Beatrix and Jenna were born in isolated European countries. They have the same amount of muscles and bones. They are movers, acrobatics, both comfortable with steam and water. Women of the Y-generation. Blonde and brunette. Nordic and Central-European. One’s ancestors lived under the Turkish empire, the other under the Swedish. One drinks pálinka and the other Koskenkorva. Almost sisters. Not quite.
Long time no see! (TERV.) is a research project about common roots and isolation, social similarities and peculiarities. It dives into meaning of words and metacommunication, actions and reactions, the space between an understanding and a misunderstanding, as sisters, as cousins.  A performance by a Hamburg-based Hungarian and Brussels-based Finn that explores the curious and familiar aspects of two distinct cultures albeit common roots.
The pre-premier of TERV. took place in the frame of Festival XS Festival at Théâtre National Wallonie-Bruxelles.
The premier of the full evening performance took place at Trafó House of Contemporary Arts in Budapest in 2018, and in the summer time Long time no see! has several shows at Festival d'Avignon in Sujets à Vif program.
