Tandem, a new sixty-minute dance by Guggenheim and Bessie award winner Douglas Dunn, imagines a wide space. As if the viewer is looking out over a savannah: things are happening over to the left; things are happening over to the right; things are happening right in the middle. A group of eight young dancers, along with an older solo figure, fill, alter, and empty the space. The variables are density, shape, rhythm and tempo. The balance of dance and dancer allows suggestive imagery to emerge. In not telling the viewer what to think or what to feel, the dance emulates nature’s unaccountable presence.
