Powerful and emotive, Hands Down is a contact-based male duet, which looks at the tensions of union and how we display strength and manage vulnerability in relationships. The piece explores the idea of walking on a tightrope of togetherness and the ways in which we let go and hold tight in order to build or break a bond.
Hands Down is the final part of a trilogy of works beginning with Search & Find and continuing with Push.
