POP-UP Duets (fragments of love) is an award winning new production by Janis Claxton Dance; a series of short (5-minute), multi-site-specific contemporary dance duets based around the themes of ‘relating’ and ‘love’. The duets will be performed in a wide range of public spaces such as museums, galleries, cafes, bus-stops, libraries etc.

Bringing together the talents of Scottish based choreographer Janis Claxton and composer Pippa Murphy with four world-class dancers, POP-UP Duets are designed to emerge from public situations and to be received by invited as well as unsuspecting or ‘accidental’ audiences.

POP-UP Duets involves a core team of world-class artists working in collaboration with innovative organisations and creative presenters.

POP-UP Duets, is funded by Creative Scotland for full production and touring July-September 2016 and, in collaboration with partners will be performed at; Merchant City Festival, National Museum of Scotland (Edinburgh Fringe), at Creative Edinburgh bespoke events, and in several locations in Fife (including libraries).

LYRICS

‘Be You’ by Pippa Murphy
Be you  Be you
Forgive you Be You

I watched your body weaken 
your mind drift free of it all
Mind flow
might flow

Be you Be you
Forgive you Be you

Remember your songs of sunshine
crying with love not pain
show me
show me

Let go 
Let it go

Be you 
be beautiful
be proud
be now
but be you

Forgive me
Let go


Give Me Your World Feat. Kathryn Joseph by Pippa Murphy

Lay your head in my hands
I’m ready to hear a new song
Only you hear me tonight my love
How do I hide my tears inside here 
How do I how do I reach your world
Can I hide in you?

Lay your heart in my hands
I’m ready to hear a new song
Only you give me true love dear one
How do I hide my tears inside here 
How do I how do I reach your world
Can I hide in you?

Please lay your life in my hands
I’m ready to give you my love
Only you keep me alive dear heart

Can I hide in you?
