From the website: APRIL 24-25 – 7.30PM – DANCE – DUCHESSES by & with FRANCOIS CHAIGNAUD MARIE CAROLINE HOMINAL – Between arid ecstasy, radiant meditation and cruel hypnosis, Duchesses explores an unlikely dance, sovereign and prisoner from the most ancient game of humanity. The hula hoop, symbol of sexual liberation, becomes for the Duchess a choreographic device, instantaneous and incessant, without a past or future – a universal two wheeled vehicle.
The male dancer, Francois Chaignaud, has a very androgynous style so it might not be everyone’s cup of tea. The performance sounds intriguing though – two people hula-hooping in the nude for 35 minutes, hoping not to drop the hoop. Runs two nights only in Brooklyn.
