du·al·i·ty
d(y)o͞oˈalədē/

noun
1.
the quality or condition of being dual.

2.
an instance of opposition or contrast between two concepts or two aspects of something; a dualism.

Do what you love, love what you do. It’s simple right?

Though perhaps it isn’t at all, especially in a society where creativity is often secondary to education, status and financial success. But despite these social pressures, there is an inexplicable intimacy that each one of us experiences when we have tapped into that intrinsic calling within ourselves.

Duality explores the world of Caroline who struggles to be understood by her mother and faces tumultuous relationships with both her parents and herself. Her fate is contingent upon the roles that adults and authority figures play in her life as well as her relationship with her element; the undeniable force that compels her to create. Within this lies the question of nurturing versus suppressing such natural desires. Throughout this highly immersive and intimate performance these topics are explored through a cultivation of movement, music and dialogue.

“We are all born artists,” Picasso once said and it is only in growing up and being judged, reprimanded, discouraged and so on that we begin to question our creativity and deny our callings. Throughout the play we see the duality within Caroline as she battles to nurture her element.

  • Inspired by the teachings of Sir Ken Robinson and Gillian Lynne.
