Between arid ecstasy, radiant meditation, and cruel hypnosis, Duchesses explores an unlikely dance, sovereign, and prisoner from the most ancient game of humanity. The hula hoop, a symbol of sexual liberation, becomes for the Duchess a choreographic device, instantaneous and incessant, without a past or future – a universal two-wheeled vehicle.
