In embrace, two men face each other constrained in their search for different forms of identification. In an investigation of their variable relation, poetic notions are employed, from a lovers’ narrative to duplicity, from a social body to a perceptive body, and of the other as witness, mirror, support, and companion. Choreographer-performers Edmond Russo and Shlomi Tuizer invited two New York artists into the creative process, poet Christina Clark and musician Oren Bloedow. This four-part composition questions the juxtaposition of these different languages creating a symbolic receptacle for disparate artistic voices, a choreographic journey of relation coming into being and a reflection on the existence of one through another.
