About the project

"I imagined the cube as an aquarium. Two dancers swimming together, dancing together, living together. Like two little human twin fish becoming one together. The piece is about a relationship and how we can sometimes feel isolated as a couple. Alone together under the surface. I wanted to show the transformation we sometimes go through when we get close. How we effect each other and become something new together."
