The relationship with the Nightingale Brighton continues, with a new touring concept piloting later this year called The Return Of The Salon, taking place in non-theatre spaces and featuring invited guests.

The pair also plan a year long online project with Sadler's Wells called 52 Portraits, to run throughout 2016.

Jonathan and Matteo are currently directing a new translation of Morton Feldman's For John Cage, realised and performed by Eleanor Sikorski and Flora Wellesley Wesley, creating a new version of their first duo Both Sitting Duet, but this time for two standing women and a vocabulary of physical touch: opening November 26th 2015.

They will begin work in May 2015 towards a new performance piece for major contemporary music group Ensemble Musikfabrik in Cologne.
