Double Elvis

(duet) (2004)

This dance explores material that crosses boundaries between concert dance performance and Drag King aesthetic. Two female dancers dressed up as Elvis Presley with wigs, sideburns, sunglasses, etc. - dance to Elvis music and move like Elvis. Halfway through the dance, they begin to confront one another in a way that is both competitive and comrade-like, struggling to rectify their troubling double vision.

Music: Elvis Presley- Heartbreak Hotel, Loving You, & sound collage from film clips of Elvis speaking
Running length: 7 minutes
