DUOS, created for Montpellier Danse 2017, is a series of five different site specific duets, performed by five different couples, in five different locations around Montpellier During five consecutive days. DUOS is a way of allowing choreographic work to spill out to the streets and public spaces. To release it from the boundaries of stage and theatrical time, and place it in the midst of the ongoing city life.
