Écrit by Nikita Goile was inspired by a letter from iconic artist Frida Kahlo to her partner Diego. The clever duet is performed by a female dancer and a giant silhouette of her lover.  It’s a beautiful power struggle that reflects the ups and downs of passionate relationships.  

  

 

"As the research started it became clear the piece would explore relationships and its dynamic, and how much do we influence one another. When pushing the boundaries, we can easily reach this delicate state where there is no distinction between control and surrender. The power keeps on shifting between the dancers, as a game."

- Nikita Goile, Choreographer

Reviews

"The love in this dance makes me cry. This feels as if it has been born perfect, perfection born of two imperfect creatures in a story of passion and pain."
