At first glance I know walking patterns are not that interesting, but the other day I caught myself stepping, turning, and shifting and immediately a vision of a group of dancers suddenly meeting in a tight unison phrase popped into my head and stuck. Once the unison is visible, duets and trios would pop out here and there creating layers, tension, and counterpoint. All this amidst a simple stepping rhythm. For now, I’ve latched on to this idea and I’m hoping it doesn’t fade away. Something this simple could clearly articulate the individuals becoming a mass. Trying to break away. And getting sucked back in.
