A strong, self-willed and pleasureful duet by two women plays with stretching the boundaries of elegant demeanor. Music drives the women leaving their sleeves jiggling.
The artwork celebrates pleasure and being carried away by rhythm. It infects also the spectator with energetic excitement and desire to take part to the dancing.
The piece has been performed in theatrical venues as well as restaurants and outdoor-festivals.
