At the webpage of Dans & Toner the following, among other things, is written about You and I and the Two of Us:
"You and I and the Two of Us is a performance for children. Through dance, music, song and theatre the story about the friendless composer Genøkkel's meeting with Ballerina is told. Genøkkel doesn't want other friends than his keyboard and computer, whileBallerina would like them to search for tones and steps together. The meeting between the two reflects scepticism, curiosity and rejection, but ends with forgiveness and friendship. It is not always easy to say one is sorry!"
