William Forsythe’s pas de deux from Slingerland Duet is drawn from his larger work, Slingerland (Part I), which featured music by British composer Gavin Bryars, stage design and film by Cara Perlman, and costume and lighting design by the choreographer. Parts II, III, and IV followed in 1990 to form Slingerland (Parts I-IV), a full-length ballet in four acts. In 2000, Slingerland Duet was first presented, made up of two duets from Slingerland (Part I) and additional choreography.

Performed by Pacific Northwest Ballet Principal dancers Laura Tisserand and Karel Cruz.
