This duet was the finale to an evening length show entitled, "Ripening: A Living Gallery of Art." This “Living Gallery” began with five soloists stationed throughout a two level event space performing improvisational solos themed around a facet of humanity. We invited the audience to move throughout the space to view the durational solo performances then shuffled them into a separate room to be seated for this interdisciplinary (dance, film, sculpture) grand finale.
Being tied together the 5 themes from the solos (motherhood, good vs. evil, politic, intimacy, adolescence) by incorporating the concept of fate. The choreographic structure of the work includes both set choreography and improvisation.
