Pas de Deux deals with rules, control, and touch, and thus lends itself to a variety of cultural & political commentary, depending on what each of the two performers is seen to represent. However, it can also be read as a more personal story between two people, or even a sort of Pinocchio tale.

Written for and developed alongside Mira Benjamin & Silje Aker Johnsen for nu:nord 2014.
Expanded afterward and filmed  with support from Arts Coucil Norway (FFLB) and The Norwegian Society of Composers.
