TENSION STATES: AMPLIFICATIONS OF THE HUMAN CONDITION
how, through dance and theatre, do we amplify the human condition? how can we unlock an individual language of tension and rhythm, to tell stories, reveal characters and charge atmospheres?
come and dive into extended improvisation scores, tripping out into distinctive and dramatic worlds – always in the pursuit of an articulate movement language.
