Duet for Nocturnal Female and Diurnal Male
This is a 25 minutes dance theatre duet choreographed by Ariane Anthony. The dancers are Luis C Sotelo and Valerie Szurdak. Original music by John Stone & Carolyn Lord. Performed April 6, 7, 8, 2002 at The Construction Company, New York City.
“Duet for Nocturnal Female and Diurnal Male is a beauty, a standalone piece in which the woman (Valerie Szurdack) represents a creature that comes alive only at night, and the man (Luis Sotelo) one that awakens only with the rising sun. Each is otherwise frozen or limp in the arms of the other.” (Jennifer Dunning, The New York Times).
