Abstract dance piece that addresses the issue
the musical body . It gives read and hear
the music of the body. Any choreography rests
as the scores written and carried by

accompanied by live music . It takes
a mastery of the inner pulsation of
listening to self and others , a sense of phrasing
choreographic and rhythmic .
