New Works at Night presents Future Leisure - No More Fantasies
Corrupting the form of 'pas de deux' by employing a utilitarian approach to physical interaction, the limits of two female bodies is displayed unadorned; the shake of muscles in contraction, the watery movement of released limbs. There is a detached sense of give-and-take where consent is pre-established and the co-operative nature of the performers' relationship renders weight exchange matter of fact. Limbs are stepped on, handled, lifted, or moved with delicate care, as the two women utilize each other's bodies for motion, propelled through space by surrendering agency to the other.
Performed by: Julianne Chapple and Maxine Chadburn.
