This is a striking work about relationships opens with several vignettes depicting a couple in strangely intimate and awkward poses. The prickly score only heightens the tension. They each take turns forcing the other to bend to their will. Danced with great energy and precision, with impressive lifts and throws, this piece posits that intimacy is hard, which is why it has such a high failure rate.
