Duets #1-4

Duets #1-4 - 1991

Dominance and submission are the primarily themes of these 4 duets created for performance art fashion shows with dancer Alexis Dunphy. Presented in various Toronto counter culture venues for several designers including Honey Garlic and Body Bag, and often called "The Royal Bad Ass Ballet" these duets would be the nurturing ground of what would become the signature raw brute force.

Excerpts of these duets would be featured in the music video 'Revenge' for the band Thrive.
