Pas de Deux is a piece that combines film and dance to create a richly visual space. In this world of red curtains, masks and light the ontology of performance is explored through the energies of this space and the relations between objects, performer and audience. The Pas de Deux becomes a dance of inner and outer selves and how they emerge and metamorphose under the gaze of the audience and in the glare of the lights.Previously presented at Spice Festival, London; Barcelona Butoh Festival; Chiyoda Arts 3331, Tokyo; UrbanGuild, Kyoto; this piece has developed and changed with each presentation.
Pas de Deux will be presented at Block House Gallery Harajuku, within the Najomo Art Project Vol. 1 ‘Expando’ series.
