DSC1486Raymond Chai is creating an as-yet-unnamed duet for Cloud Dance Festival, about the tensions and unspoken challenges in fleeting relationships. It's to be performed by Melanie López and Oliver Freeston: previously appearing in Cloud Dance Festival in December 2009 with Diciembre Dance Group, Melanie has also worked with Peter Schaufuss Ballet, Ballet Ireland and Avatara Ayuso, while Oliver has worked with the Georgian State Ballet, Peter Schaufuss Ballet and Company C Contemporary Ballet, and performed at the last Cloud Dance Festival with Sol Dans. It'll be great to have both of them back!

Raymond Chai's duet will be performed on Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 July, and you can read more about it here.
