About the Performance:

"Under this weight (Duet)” is part of Dam Van Huynh's Nude Series in which he explores the many facets of the nude self: the physical form and the fragile self, stripped of inhibitions. This  series of works sees a shift in the artists choreographic language delving into universally shared themes on the human condition. The duet exposes expressionistic reaction of human gestures and emotional form under pressure, be it a mental or physical pressure: endurance, resistance, surrender... There is never a dominant winner in this exchange, but a constant power shift.
