Other’s Moments is a duet between a dancer and an actor; a multi layered piece which incorporates spoken word with a fusion of Latin American and Contemporary dance techniques.
The love theme between a couple is frequently used in dance and art; however, this piece focuses on the reasons that keep a relationship together. Is it convenience, obsession, dependence, desire, belonging or the need for the other sex? Is it possible to love someone without loving yourself first?
