The performances by Frédérick Gravel are obscure and impulsive. He previously presented in Potsdam in 2013 with "Gravel Works", an unclassifiable piece with a live band, rocky choreography and spontaneous physicality. Together with Ellen Furey, he now shows a "duet of intimacy", which also tests the limits of poetry, roughness and emotions. On stage, they are alternatively spectators and perpetrators, provocative and empathetic, demanding and repulsive. Together they go into a crescendo and create a unique dramatic language in which accidents and body impacts combined create unexpected dance moments. "This Duet ..." is a piece of rarefied beauty, characterized by self-irony and playfulness, which never ceases to surprise and touch through its deep humanity and vulnerability.
