LJOVA's original composition provides the backdrop for two dancers as they carry on a playful and intricate conversation that explores their mutual interest and suspicion of one another. 

At times the dancers break from "performing" and engage in a vocal and gestural meta-dialogue about their performance, as though the work is not yet finished and they are creating the latter half as they perform it. 

The duet concludes as the lights fade to black and LJOVA's multi-channeled composition swells to an empassioned frenzy before subduing into a consistent, lingering pulse.
