Maverick Flemish choreographer Jan Martens follows up his stunning Vancouver debut last season with a signature work which has toured all over the world. Sweat Baby Sweat takes the most clichéd theme in dance - the relationship between a man and a woman – and distils it into an intensely physical, intimate duet depicting all-consuming love. An acrobatic balancing act which demands extraordinary strength and stamina, it focuses on two people who literally can't let one another go. This is a very modern mating ritual, filled with moments of sensual tenderness, desire, resistance and co-dependence, a highly-charged encounter which both comforts and unsettles.
