This dance-infused acrobatic circus performance is an eloquent, subtly layered feat of artful invention. In the spotlight are two agile performers who know how to imbue their extreme technical prowess with considerable feeling. The ever-changing shifts, twists and turns of a fluctuating relationship are expressed with a seamless physical grace and strength, but also loaded at times with a tender emotional vulnerability. Whether lifting each other up or bringing each other down, ultimately everything this onstage couple have to 'say' is in their bodies. This show has been programmed by Dance Base in collaboration with Assembly.

Dancebase is truly one of the best festival venues and quality of the shows is outstanding. Duo if fantastic, simple but powerful relationship story. Very recommended.

At times truly breathtaking, Taiwan Season Duo explores the complex ebb and flow of a relationship through thrilling choreography. Though few words are spoken throughout, a relatable narrative of love emerges from the stage, as the couple unite in naive hope, lose themselves, and struggle with their individuality as they fight their way back to one another.

Amazing. I’ve seen a lot of circus shows at the Fringe and the acro-dance elements of this show are some of the most beautiful and impressive I’ve ever seen. A really characterful performance, you’re not just watching a series of tricks, you’re actually being taken on a journey with the performers. I really recommend this
