Relationship A attempts to perform and represent, through costume, eye contact, and movement, a certain kind of partnership. It is one in a series of performances that investigate different relationships and the way in which they are built up or broken down. The representations are centered around the costumes, which have elements that may attach, detach, come apart entirely, or reassemble in some way. The way these garments change  structure and change the interactions between the performers, reflects the shifts and phases in a relationship.

The performance shows two people coming together; detaching and sharing parts of themselves with the other, attaching those discarded parts together, then joining their remaining pieces in a union to become one person, and eventually revealing this tertiary personage that resulted from their combined discarded parts.

Relationship A is neither a positive nor negative representation, but simply an attempt to dramatize the arc of this partnership.
