A marvelous musical duet hints at Baroque and folk influences during a crotch-grabbing romp that climaxes in an acrobatic threesome. A young man, Csaba Moinar, ducks his head staring at the audience somewhat myopically looking for something: a collaborator? a victim? a new friend perhaps? He points to his chosen and waves his hand, beckoningly. As he gets more insistent, his energy does a boomerang, flattening him. A woman, Tamara Zsofia Vadas, picks up the game of looping one gesture through dominant / submissive stances until her finger wags in a scolding manner at an invisible child. Emotional cycles loom large in SKIN ME, as performed by this egalitarian Hungarian ensemble.
