Another Solo for Two

A site responsive version of Solo for Two

An Other Solo for Two is a site responsive work featuring excerpts from Solo for Two.

The first work premiered as part of the Wonderful World Late event at the Horniman Museum & Gardens to celebrate the newly reopened World Gallery, which explored the transforming nature of human identity across cultures and time. The work has also been performed at Trinity Laban as part of Black History Month and online for Let’s Dance International Frontiers 2021 in collaboration with Serendipity.

This work is a reimagining of Solo for Two and can take place in many different forms, in both indoor, outdoor and online settings.

“Jean Abreu’s spellbinding ‘Solo For Two’ in the packed World Gallery at the Horniman Museum tonight as part of our Shared World Late”

Nick Merriman

“The rhythmic jigging became ecstatic, trance-like. Then the dancers disappeared, leaving the robot alone among the ethnographic displays from around the world.”
