Keyhole Dances (2008)

Keyhole Dances is a site-specific performance in a Victorian flat with live music and improvised installations in every room, followed by almost painfully intimate duets in the bed, the bathtub, and at the kitchen table. These duets were made into the Domestic Animals films.

"Site-specific works are not exactly the newest kids on the block. But few can claim to be as utterly charming and finely wrought as Erin Mei-Ling Stuart's Keyhole Dances." - Rita Felciano, San Francisco Bay Guardian
