"Exploring the concept of soul mates and human connection, Side to One follows two individuals destined to connect. Attracted like magnets they are never static but constantly evolving."

"The chance to find one's soul mate is a journey that all people go on at some stage in their life – the struggle of being accepted and even loved. Some find their soul mate quickly while others search eternally."

In an interview with Grace Edwards for Dance Informa Magazine, Lisa Griffiths and Craig Bary, who have been working together for over a decade, discussed their working methods:

Lisa – "We are peers who share a great deal of skill and experience, so when we choreograph, we sometimes create phrases separately in the studio before coming together to learn each other's sections. Then together, we extend the material further. When making duet work we simply experiment and see where a movement idea may move us – sometimes into a dance lift, or one supporting the other suspended. We find these places by trusting and listening to each other, always keeping our connection and an awareness of each other's bodies. If we fall, we fall together, again finding a new choreographic outcome."

Craig – "We have also spent many a night with our heads near computer screens writing and rewriting concepts, ideas and grant applications, and refining what we discover in the studio. It has been a long and sporadic process of development spanning a few years. Each time we come back together we see what still inspires us and we develop those ideas, or throw them out and find new ones."
