World premiere 4 April 2013, Lucent Dans theater, Den Haag.
Maybe Two is a piece for 16 dancers, and deals with relationships, love, pain, and also the devastation love can bring. It is also about the way you and I cope with it all. The piece uses a mix of narration and dance showcasing Alexander Ekmans typical wit. The piece is performed with a string quartet on stage.
”Let me confess that we two must be twain,
Although our undivided loves are one:
So shall those blots that do with me remain
Without thy help by me be borne alone.
In our two loves there is but one respect,
Though in our lives a separable spite,
Which though it alter not love’s sole effect,
Yet doth it steal sweet hours from love’s delight.
I may not evermore acknowledge thee,
Lest my bewailed guilt should do thee shame,
Nor thou with public kindness honour me,
Unless thou take that honour from thy name:
But do not so; I love thee in such sort
As, thou being mine, mine is thy good report.”
Sonnet 36, Shakespeare.
