The Belgian-Portuguese contemporary dance duo of Pieter Ampe and Guilherme Garrido are blasting whatever stuffiness you might associate with “contemporary dance” right out of the room with a piece that sees them grunting, wrestling, and generally beating the crap out of each other. While there are moments of tense body positioning, a clothing-to-nudity costume progression, and some much-talked-about penis manipulations, this dance—performed without a soundtrack other than the dancers’ sometimes-hostile noises and hisses—seems to evoke the whole spectrum of male-to-male interactions and friendships, as told through a physical language that involves wrestling, gymnastics, and plain old testosterone-driven violence.
