What is real/actual/autobiographic is morphed into fiction leaving uncertainty as to what is genuine and what is fake. This is an exploration of the real, the surreal and what lies in between. A performing couple performs a couple of couples and are married with kids. The stereotypes, the cliches the truths the untruths.

Shedding light on this matter, highlighting, distracting, suggesting and even censoring is the lighting design itself, reacting in realtime to what is being proposed on stage.

This piece began 6 years ago as part of a project called An Evening (En Kveld) which curated works in progress. This provided a framework for choreographers to take risks, test ideas and get audience feedback. A snippet of the duet was performed at massive Art Party in Christchurch the 18th of December 2020. This full-length version has been awarded a Fringe Artist Grant.
