@thesonnieside and I chose the duo name “a Symmetry” for several reasons:
—We’re dramatically different heights.
—In our choreography, we tend to favor unusual transitions, counterbalances, and poses over mirrored moves.
—Yet in spite of these asymmetrical factors, we still create “a Symmetry” of form and movement between us.
So then there’s this photo.
Our pose is almost mirrored here, but even so (or possibly *because* of that fact):
to me, this image embodies so much of our theatrical style and namesake.
I absolutely love it.
