Bright Nights 2016/2017 is proud to continue its season with the world premiere of two intimate duets choreographed by Simon Renaud and Tedd Robinson and by Common People’s Andrew Hartley and Emma Kerson, respectively. l’inanité des bibelots / love would only slow me down, by Kerson and Hartley, uses the body to examine loneliness, depict ugliness, contrast the genders, and question our understanding of identity. Robinson’s new duet is steeped in allegorical images. Through nuanced textures, audiences are given a glimpse of a relationship weighted by physical architecture yet floating indefinitely through time.
