Dual

WINNER
2013 Help­mann Award for Best Male Dancer (Alis­dair Macindoe)

“…evanes­cent while artic­u­lately shaped, adding greatly to Dual’s per­va­sive sense of lone vul­ner­a­bil­ity and frag­ile, raw mutu­al­ity. This col­lab­o­ra­tion between Stephanie Lake and Robin Fox has yielded a mem­o­rable, vis­ceral work, at once strange and famil­iar and bril­liantly per­formed.”
Keith Gal­lasch, Real Time March 2013

Stephanie Lake’s DUAL is a chore­o­graphic puz­zle that fuses jagged yet slip­pery pieces.

Two solos are per­formed one after the other. Two dis­tinctly dif­fer­ent worlds — con­trast­ing, and seem­ingly unre­lated.  In a third act the two solos mirac­u­lously inter­lock form­ing a com­plex duet that sees all ele­ments – their musi­cal scores, their atmos­pheres combine.

In this fugue-like tale of syn­the­sis, DUAL asks ques­tions about indi­vid­u­al­ity and what is sac­ri­ficed as well as height­ened by a union.
