| DESCRIPTION | Hyper-dynamic movement defined by musicality and rhythm allows the body to experience the challenges and sensations of various qualities. Grounded in floor-work and highly physical phrase work this technique places emphasis on momentum and attack of the movement. Using physicality to access theatricality will call upon the performer to fill in the experience beyond just movement and open up the mind and body to their fullest potential.
