Ten tons of wet clay become a playground for an artist and a choreographer in this adventurous collaboration. With startling physicality the two performers axe, sling, slap, shape and reshape the soft clay, using giant tools and their own bodies to produce amazing shapes and structures.

Exploring the act of artistic creation itself, Paso Doble gives a vivid and visceral glimpse into the obsessions, anxieties and excitement experienced by artists in the process of making unconventional new work. Coated in clay like living sculptures, the two performers are almost absorbed into their canvas– themselves a part of the endless work-in-progress.
