Chloé Déchery: A Duet Without You

Photograph by Aruna Ganesh-Ran.

7.30pm. £7

“Tonight, we will think about them. The absentees. The ghosts. The departed. The ones who missed the train. The ones who couldn't be here with us tonight. The ones who had other commitments. This is for them.”

A Duet Without You is a solo performance trying (and inevitably failing) to be a duet. Re-enacting a pas-de-deux without a partner, drawing handprints and body traces onto the floor, following instructions from an absent other, Chloé Déchery embarks upon a series of intermittent conversations with friends and collaborators Simone Kenyon, Deborah Pearson and Pedro Inês. Beyond distance and despite absence, Chloé and her collaborators try to experience what it means to be in the same room together and what it means to be apart.
