Zinzi & Evertjan



The life journeys of Zinzi & Evertjan have become entangled. As an acrobatic duo, they experience so much together, which makes it difficult to make up where your own path stars and the other one begins. They’re together as one, but they are opposites at the same time. Commitment and urge for freedom fight for first place.
