In the lounge D&DF&P Danielle Friedman & Doron Perk
About This Show
We are a Free Improvisation based duo. We use music and dance improvisation to create moment inspired pieces. Our work is dependent on communication and interpreting the other to build a story together. This evening is a culmination of months of collaborative research and immersion in the present moment.
