Eric Lamoureux and Thierry Thieû Niang stride out onto the empty stage and set about covering it in a dozen-odd blankets. Across the ensuing 50 minutes, their leaps and pirouettes will whip these blankets up into all kinds of shapes: rocky outcrops one minute, lunar crevasses the next. Eventually, the blankets will leave the floor and wrap themselves around the dancers, aiding and hindering their movements in equal measure. This is duet dancing at its most enchanting – a brief but beautiful exploration of the link between these two men at the peak of their art.
