Companion Experiment


Companion Experiment is a duet that traces the evolution of a relationship between two strangers who are the unassuming subjects caught within the confines of an undefined experiment. Through the the interactions of the subjects, the experiment calls into question the physical and emotional aspects of dominance and control, partnering and role reversal, lust, love, rage, loss and heartache. The choreography is a fusion of counterbalance partnering, and elements of modern, release, pop and lock, breaking, krumping and stylized Lindy hop. The mood and environment is set by the lighting while the dark tone is further enhanced by gritty beats and eerie electronic music.
