The thoracic outlet is an “opening” at the base of the neck, on both sides, where the nerves and artery that service the arm on that side exit through as they descend into the arm. It is formed by the anterior and medial scalene muscles, the first rib, and the clavicle (collar bone). atlantadentist.com/TOS_scalenes.JPG
Dealing with one of the most maneuverable joints in the body and working with the essence of the classical line.
The dancers commit to an improvisation based on where they were, extracting their body parts from previously inhabited space, avoiding where the body has been and constantly relating to the room and bodies in it.
The tip of their focus becomes a pivot-point for movement. Relationships are made, broken and remade. Every movement is fueled by the sense of space inside the joints and the greed for sensation in these mobile places.
