You're Me uses the archetypal dance form of the male/female duet to explore the poignant tension between fantasy and present tense sensation, seeking to at once satisfy and debunk the duet's expectations around romance, gender, beauty, sex, partnering, role-play, and autobiography. Performers Faye Driscoll and Jesse Zaritt rapidly slip from recognizable narratives to imagined ones—a couple at a dance club, then imagined beasts, then “original” man and woman in the seductive contrapposto of a Renaissance painting—in an effort to transform the logic of fixed identities.
