Duet Love performs love, lust and charged energy. Portland choreographer Tahni Holt’s latest work presents coupled bodies performing gendered states around the romantic premise of the “duet.” Holt and her artistic team draw from iconic photographs of hetero couples to drive this inquiry into how bodies perform gender. If masculine and feminine are forces and factors, how do markers of gender and race inflect the movement, emotion and decisions of dancing bodies and how do we as audience read them?
Duet Love premiered at Velocity Dance Center in Seattle on September 4, 2014 and in Portland on September 13, 2014 at PICA’s Time-Based Art Festival.
Performance is 60 minutes and will be followed by a talk-back with Tahni Holt.
Doors at 7pm, performance at 7:30. NO LATE SEATING.
