Deborah Black teams up with Margot Basset to create, Gladys, a dance-theatre trio for two performers. They sing and dance a series of planned and scored events, which result in a spectacular and surprising love triangle. In addition to Gladys, Black, shares her solo adaptation of Deborah Hay's I'll Crane for You and Bassett presents, thistle, an original solo duet.
