CLOS is a small contemporary dance piece on the lightness and heaviness of being together.
The piece follows the themes of defining oneself and the other, seizing and releasing control over another person and touching with dominant or compliant quality. Tender and violent dance and partnering shift and seek for balance.
CLOS is loosely based on Jean-Paul Sartre's play No Exit, in which three persons are sentenced to an eternity in a locked room.
"at times the relationship between the trio seemed to soften to burst again into a passionate mutual struggle for survival"
