Negotiating space

Negotiating space explores fluids and its affect on the human body when in dysfunction. Focusing on the strands of “no space”, stuck energy, transformation and struggle, the choreography has a repetitious pattern to it, juxtaposing the underlying quality of fluidity. Repetitious almost as in a spiralling sense of the urge to completion, to push through the stuck phase to enable transformation into the next. As if spirals are circles trying to complete themselves.
