Lincoln Center’s campus becomes the stage for this “richly inventive, wonderfully perceptive” set of duets (Herald, U.K.) from acclaimed Scottish choreographer Janis Claxton. Over the course of nine encounters, pairs of dancers emerge from the crowds to offer ephemeral glimpses of love and affection, from overt flirtation to secret passions, all set to a gorgeous score by Pippa Murphy. A unanimous hit at the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Duets will delight visitors during the second week of Lincoln Center Out of Doors.
“Janis Claxton is a dance-maker at the top of her technical game, with a rare emotional intelligence.”– Guardian (U.K.)
“Everything about POP-UP Duets is inspired.”– Herald (U.K.)
