Submersed in our most abundant substance, water, Forming In plays with the rise and fall of a body influenced by the pull of tempo. A moving body against the resistance of water enhances physical awareness. Range of movement is expanded, distorted, and smeared as floating patterns form within during times of uncertainty.
*Forming In was initially choreographed for Brigham Young University.
