The stage floor in Damien Jalet’s Skid is on a 34-degree incline, which heads straight into the orchestra pit. The human relationship to gravity and the resistance and abandonment bound to it is what sets the 16 dancers in motion. When the floor is on such a steep incline, objects fall and continue to accelerate unless something stops them. Empty clothing left behind immediately slides away. This new landscape of physical possibilities creates a chain reaction of physical and emotional events - dangerous, humorous, moving.
