"'Sally meets Stu' is not really about a Sally and a Stu, they are only there to show and tell us something about us. I love opening questions for discussion without using even one word - I believe that while meeting Sally and Stu, we agree with missing the answers - I offer us to lean back and enjoy the unpredictable." - Agami
With a cast of 9 dancers Agami brings to the stage a unique full evening piece. The combination between live narration, a tasteful sound track and the original vocabulary by Agami, completes a rich entertaining experience for the audience.
