Trust is one of the basic tenets of life. By earning it, we gain entry into the lives of others. As a basis for social ritual, the physicality of trust—the gestures of shared values—can establish systems of belief, dependence and seduction.
This new duet by choreographer/performer Tedd Robinson and composer/performer Charles Quevillon uses trust as a base point for creative examination; a resonant encounter in an intimate and historically complex setting that invites the curious to trust the curious.
