A pas de deux of daring choreography based on the Petit Allegro movement of classical ballet: sometimes tradition becomes a fetish to blindly follow, other times one is expected to annihilate it.

Dovydas Strimaitis is a Lithuanian artist living and working between France and Belgium. He was a dancer at the National Ballet of Marseille, where he collaborated, among others, with Peeping Tom and choreographers Alessandro Sciarroni and Lucinda Childs.
