Choreography / 1964

Paired

"Paired" was a duet consisting of nine events done together. The sequence was determined each performance. There were preparatory running steps in between events during which dancers could go off stage, dip paint, re-enter and smear it on one another. The sequence was completely determined during performance. (Matinee performance)
