I used text as pathway to generate the movement. I was interested in composing a dance from a thread of directives like ‘point to something’.
The dance is in two parts. The first section is two simultaneous solos creating a dry, formal and disconnected environment. The second section is created from the same solos but now in contact and directly impacting/affecting each other. The environment shifts and creates a warm, funny and romantic atmosphere between the dancers.
