diptyque

Celebrated choreographer Rachid Ouramdane and director Pascal Rambert’s two pieces comprise a third through the experience of comparing and contrasting these two works, challenging the audience to forge a complete oeuvre from two separate parts.

The Diptyque is created through collaboration between these two leading French artists and a US collaborator, this is a double presentation, in both spaces, of two major works, set in conjunction and contrast with each other. Both are solos engaged in fascinating ways with identity, one in blinding whiteness, the other in blinding blackness.

Without realizing it, the artists often speak to each other. With My Own Hands presents a naked woman, with male genitals on a plinth, each body part microscopically lit. A Standing Boy is a solo performance featuring Rambert surrounded by projections of nature. Gender, presence and the idea of the performer are all thrown into confusion in this dizzy two-bodied free fall.
