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.
