say no more!: Gregorgy Holt & Sara Yassky (San Francisco/Philadelphia)
Choreography/Performance: Sara Yassky and Gregory Holt

How do we encounter two people? How does repetition change our understanding of relationships? This international collection of duets examines our expectations of the interplay of language and definition of space. Club Fisk's Forstillinger plays with a spare Scandinavian structure on repeat, complete with explanation and elaborate costume changes. The two forms in Utah create a bodily landscape made of negative space in Meg Foley's tense investigation. Holt and Yassky's exploration in say no more! employs limitation as a window into revealing relationships.
