Drop Down, 2007

Drop Downis a 12-minute duet investigating how a man and a woman negotiate proximity and erotic power. The movement springs out of the mechanics of tango, with its revolving central axis, knife-like leg action and quick-changing rhythms.

Drop Down won top prize in New York's 2007 The A.W.A.R.D. Show, a series in which the audience votes on the best modern dance.
