"Transitional State" attempts to describe, through a nonlinear narrative, characters overwhelmed by life transitions leading to a state of emotional unraveling, expressed through the movement and laughter. Through mercurial weight shifts we will explore how these sudden shifts, optimistically force us to adapt.
Through, gesture, body language, projection of energy, breath and muscular effort, "The Body Becomes the Messenger" plots the cause and effect of small changes of consciousness and energy in interactions with others. As the complexity of the dance unfolds, material appears and reappears, is altered and transformed as the context changes and evolves.
