«Chasing a Ghost» challenges the choreographic archetype of the duet. In her latest work, the choreographer and visual artist Alexandra Bachzetsis continuously creates a double: a double body, a double sound and a double space. Five dancers, two pianists and a stage setting that shifts between movement and moving images echo this duality perfectly.
