Production Details / Press Releases
To walk… to… with… away from…
The fall… The shift… The common weight… The counterpoint…
A research on walking.
A very basic yet highly sophisticated and intricate form of movement.
A continues weight shift that takes a direction.
Touching the boarders of off balance as it stays centered.
Endless oppositions and spirals within a body as it moves forward.
Two bodies… as they walk together, patterns and shapes appear, subtle dynamics can be interpreted, images can be drawn, and narratives can form.
