The title of this duet for two male dancers derives from the legendary Chinese sage, Lao Tze’s famous and well-known work, Tao Te Ching – The Path of Virtue. In the title, Tao refers to the path, the way, the universal law; and Te refers to virtue – the power through which tao manifests itself. The task is to maintain harmony. The old script invites one to search for a virtuous and meaningful life but it also describes the failure that this search involves. A tension that is visible in the dance. The physical dance is a story of two men with different characters and attitudes. Are they friends, brothers, or just strangers? Their characters evolves through a series of situations, conflicts, inner struggles and failures. They change and develop just as the path changes. Can they find the desired harmony in the end?
