LOW PROFILE’s research into double acts began when other people started to ask Hannah and Rachel to explain their collaborative practice – to explain how they work together and why, about who does what and who comes up with all the ideas, about what they disagree on, about what makes them argue and whether or not they are lovers.

The artists start by making a list of, and then writing letters to, other double acts to try and make sense of their own collaborative practice.
