Rosalind Mason and Jack Webb: 'Corps Tête': Idiosyncratic energy meets fluid and dynamic form, a man and woman explore different faces of the same coin. The resulting qualities reflect upon one another and the viewer, resonating to the audience through sound and movement. A dialogue is created by the artists through interaction, struggle, confluence and transformation. This is a version of the original work, Quartet.

Rosalind Masson is a choreographer and dancer working in the UK and Germany. She is a graduate of The Place and studied Media Art at Duncan of Jordanstone college of Art and Design. Jack Webb is a dance artist who has worked with many companies and choreographers in the UK and Europe as well as presenting his work extensively in the UK.

h2dance: 'DUET': DUET investigates the two P's; pairs and power. Being on the verge of a breakup, Hanna and Heidi have decided to take up couple therapy. After 13 years together the two choreographers take a brutally honest look at themselves, revealing a confused and disillusioned relationship. The constant quest for power and admiration has taken its toll.

Supported by the Arts Councils of England, Norway and Sweden, region Värmland Sweden, DansIT Trondheim Norway, Studiotrade Cologne, Dans I Värmalnd Karlstad Sweden, South eats Dance, Dancedigital, The Place and Escalator.
