“The timeline shared between two artists reveals similarities of their histories, one coming of age in apartheid South Africa, and the other in Belarus in the wake of the Chernobyl disaster. 'Darling', as a term of endearment between these two friends becomes symbolic of their complicity.

Conversations on the institutionalised racism, homophobia, political turmoil of their respective homelands - and what was interiorised or blissfully ignored in their youth - emerged as the starting point for a dance duet whose form is layered with cultural references. Darling sublimates this double-edged dialogue; how to cherish what is dear and protest the unbearable, with unmediated physicality.”

- Kitty Kortes Lynch
