...And Two You (2023)
This contemporary dance work revolves around two separate duets. Using movement and spoken word the dancers wrestle with the societal expectation of human intimacy being between two people-no more and no less. This piece positions the idea of a "couple" as a heteronormative construct where intimacy with oneself or with multiple people engenders scrutiny, pity, and judgement. It interrogates the human quest for “the one” and physically examines the solace, messiness, and challenges of two.
