Duet A is an imaginationary choreography for two. Through headphones the participants are given the assignment to close their eyes and imagine specific situations. These mental constructions vary from abstract to very personal. The combination of this imaginationary trip with the spatial composition, constructed by the participants moving around, creates a game of introspection, reflection and projection. In this work the personal reconstruction and perception of time and space (and their connection) are central.

Roel Heremans started this artistic research and reflection after a severe accident he was in and of which he does not remember anything. Only by bringing together the declarations of the witnesses he could imagine what precisely happened. It seemed as if our brain could function as a nest in which reality, fantasy, observations, memories, information, truth or fiction live together and sometimes even intermingle.
