The piece attempts to address the common theme of power struggles within relationships and searches for new ways to experience and think about desire and will. Attempting to be brave enough and put defences aside, the piece looks for ways in which we can be genuine, vulnerable and naked, and dare to communicate it. To let ourselves see and be seen; to desire and be desired; and look for what may happen if we do manage, even if for a brief moment, to put some restraints aside.

Ultimately, Between Us is about intimacy, and about the journey longing for it (intimacy) takes us on.
