Is it a duet?
“To express a movement in all its character and truth, it is important that it be at once
the result of the successive moments that have preceded the moment that one
has fixed, and that it announces the sensations of those that will follow”
Auguste Rodin, 1911
Two performers dancing, walking and typing seem to have no other communication than the text they build together.
Movement that is distilled until its disappearance.
Dance as an ephemeral practice.
Text as a concrete trace they leave behind.
