1990 – Orbit, an intriguing duet danced by Tim Harling and Eddie Taketa, filmed during the early period framed by the HIV and AIDS crisis. The film is an excerpt from the evening-length stage work, Obsession. Love of men for each other is the opening segment in the dance. This duet is a very short version of a longer dance in the stage work: http://vimeo.com/8054192.

What the press is saying
"The dynamic between two dancers is beautifully captured by a camera that weaves around their bodies. A brief and sensuous video about movement and imagery." Washington Showcase
