In the small space just in front of the curtain, just at the edge of the stage, is «Duo», a clock composed of two dancers. The dancers register time in a spiraling way, make it visible, thinking about how it fits into space. They pull time into an intricate, naked pattern and the pattern grows and unfolds as they tumble, shear, strike, reverse. Their bodies brilliant in a shimmer of skin, the dancers delicately construct a faceted puzzle of accuracy, as their breath sings of the spaces in time. Distant music appears and vanishes as the dancers follow each other through the whirling, etched quiet. Finally, they become a clock that regards the limitless by returning to where it began.
