This is a duet created by John Wannehag and performed by myself and Toke Broni Strandby, for John’s final year independent project at NSCD.
“Do you remember your first love? The burning intense feeling of unconditional love? I do. This piece is about a relationship between two people, a man and a woman. It’s about their struggles, their fights, their love and their hate. It’s about the absolute honest part of a relationship, how they live for each other and how they desparately struggle to do just that – love… The desparation of wanting to love, but being unable to love”.
We’re performing this duet again tomorrow as part of Burst, a platform of new choreographic talent at Yorkshire Dance in Leeds. I’m looking forward to doing it again. It’s a piece that anyone can relate to. We’ve all been there… 😉
