In fragments of conversation, and in excerpts from their blog, choreographers Simon Ellis and Colin Poole talk about how their first collaborative process grappled with identity, responsibility and uncertainty in performance. This article, ‘My name is Colin, and this is Simon’, written in collaboration with writer Elizabeth Boyce, draws these fragmentary texts together, but does not attempt to definitively sum up Simon and Colin’s work together. Instead, it gives just a glimpse into their time in the studio — itself an open-ended dialogue.
