Domestic Animals (2009)

A series of 3 short dance films about the trials and travails of domestic life and not-so-romantic relationships. In Domestic Animals #1, a couple engages in a passive aggressive battle over breakfast. In Domestic Animals #2, preparations for a night out are derailed by an argument. Domestic Animals #3 features an insomniac kept awake by her partner's habit of singing in his sleep. These videos were adapted from our site-specific show "Keyhole Dances"
