A duet by Miranda Wheen and Matt Cornell generating a very particular movement vocabulary. Part of an ongoing collaboration which also produced dancing with, slap and grab, all mass is interaction and this research showing.
from the program:
“Our bodies are complex beasts. Their mere physical structure means the potential for movement, dance, is vast and varied. Attached to these complicated vessels are minds; wilful, desirous and competitive. Between Two and Zero, like the social dances of our grandparents, smashes together two of these hopelessly sophisticated beings. The risk of failure and humiliation is high, and the rewards are sweet.”
