Abstract (English)

"Dualité / Dualité (2015) is a series of new collage-based works by Leisure (Meredith Carruthers and Susannah Wesley), produced as the result of a 2014 research residency at Artexte. These works form a new mise-en-scène for the investigation of Françoise Sullivan’s choreography Dualité. First performed with Jeanne Renaud in 1948 and re-performed many times since, notably at the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal in 1988, Dualité is an intimate portrait of two natures intertwined in one being. Unfolding in a series of parallel gestures for two dancers, the action of Dualité is expressed in a space activated between them. Dualité / Dualité revisits multiple performances of the original choreography to understand how movements are translated over time and how ephemeral events are experienced and re-interpreted through documentation. The resulting images forge new links between these performances, highlighting the formal and psychological implications of the mirroring and layering, doubling and repetition found within the original performances and the artists’ re-interpretation." -- Publisher's website.
