Pas de deux - for violinist and performer (2015)
In Pas de deux a set of "rules" are quickly understood: a performer standing behind must generate all motions (and therefore sounds) the violinist makes, and the violinist will continue the motion until it is stopped or changed by the performer. At first, a "puppet/puppet master" relationship seems to pertain, however over time the relationship grows more complex.
