another piece apart, a duet resting in silence, reflects on a history of fractured togetherness and a shared love of dance to blur boundaries between bodies in space. The movement is off-balanced yet precise and multi-focused. The knotted partnering reaches into tones of touch.

another piece apart has received support from New York Live Arts at Live Artery, The Bates Dance Festival, Amherst College, and the School for Contemporary Dance and Thought in Northampton, MA.

Jennifer Nugent and Paul Matteson premiered their first duet, "Fare Well", at Danspace Project in 2006, beginning an ongoing exploration into partnering that at once honors and challenges personal possibility. They are BESSIE Award receiving performers who danced together with David Dorfman Dance, Lisa Race, and The Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company. They have 2018-19 performances of their recent duet, "another piece apart", at New York Live Arts, The Kaatsbaan Center, The Boston Dance Complex, Emory University, and The University of Virginia.
