道德 Tao Te borrows its title from Tao Te Ching – The Path of Virtue, the famous work of the legendary Chinese sage Lao-Tzu. Tao refers to the path, the way, the universal law, and Te to virtue – the power through which Tao manifests itself. The task is to maintain harmony, and this philosophy is explored and expounded on through Ferenc Fehér's duet for male dancers.

The tension between our search for a virtuous and meaningful life as well as the subsequent failure of this quest is palpable in Fehér's choreography. We are presented with an intense physical dance between two men with different characters and attitudes. Are they friends, brothers or strangers? Their personalities evolve through a series of situations, conflicts, inner struggles and failures. They change and develop, just as the path changes as you go on your way.

Can they find the desired harmony in the end?
