2 dancers + 2 musicians, 18 minutes
A dynamic male duet accompanied by live musicians (tabla and beatbox), who improvise a driving soundtrack around an intensely rhythmic structure, combining the traditional with the contemporary in a highly innovative way. Starting in their purest forms, seen through abstract mirrors, the mutual attraction of two distinct dance forms brings them to a collision in which both cease to exist; rather, something new is formed. Clear and sharp with mesmerising physical articulation.
Decreasing Infinity has performed to sell out audiences at Dublin Dance Festival and at Dance Base during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and continues to be enjoyed by audiences across the country when performed in mixed bills alongside other company works.
