Powerful and emotive, this contact-based duet looks at the tensions of union and how we display strength and manage vulnerability in relationships. The piece explores how we walk a tightrope of togetherness and the ways in which we let go and hold tight in order to build or break a bond.
Hands Down is the final part of a trilogy of works beginning with Search & Find and continuing with Push. Co-commissioned by Greenwich+Docklands International Festival & Dance Manchester.
