Live Performance of 'Double Take' that took place at the University of Greenwich, April 26th, 2017. The performance juxtaposes video from the original performances from 1986 with the same dancers more than thirty years later performing the same work, though adapted for the people they have become. The dance itself is about the passage of a relationship, and the emotional volatility of love. As a new version, the relationship between past and present becomes as important as that between the two dancers.
