MAN OR FISH - 2006

Man or Fish is a curious and striking duet that places two men in a range of scientific experiments in order to discover the substance of their dancing. Sometimes scientist – sometimes guinea pig, their ritual serves to draw out the vulnerability, and absurdity of two humans trying to communicate.


It is a collaboration between choreographer, sound artist and lighting designer, in which each collaborator is looking to strip down the elements to their barest essentials.


Choreography - Henrietta Hale

Performers - Ben Duke, Seke Chimutengwende
