It Takes Two Too

It Takes Two Too explores the possibilities of gender roles through Latin and Contemporary Dance.

How much we are trained to do/perform “woman” or “man” - ideas imposed by society - rather than just being.


What if women and men both were trained to be leaders

What if men and women both were trained to be followers

"Tokyo-born Yukiko Masui’s It Takes Two Too is a sexy, sultry landscape of Latin flavours, gently rolling hips and slow electronica. Dressed neutrally, the two couples are clad in black turtleneck tops and black ankle length skirts, revealing bare thighs through an open slit. Masui’s investigation of gender norms presents itself as same-gender pairings, as well as women leading their male counterparts...It Take Takes Two Too is a slick and seductive work."
