At the core of our work lies a deep interest in the expressive power of human movement. Our process is a collaborative searching, by choreographer and dancers, for moments of off balance and discomfort ...searching for questions that lead to new ways of moving and listening. We often use found movement material. Small pedestrian gestures are discovered through observing people in transit, in conversation, in thought and then combined with grand space devouring locomotion. Piercing these pure movement elements with meditations on family relationships, nature and the body creates a layered world for both performers and audiences.
