Forms of Us

While you hold me, I carry you.

In this ten-minute duet, we explore the primal need to be carried.

Exploring the acts of holding and being held, we use ten positions as our basic vocabulary. The work moves through three distinct sections. In the first section, we unite and transform, never leaving one another. In the second, our bodies act apart. In this section, continue our independent paths within the same vocabulary, this time allowing the positions to produce movement. The last part is dedicated to caring and carrying. By repeating the same sequence over and again, we find harmony in giving and taking weight.
