The dancers in the work embody a clash of aesthetic modes, ranging from detailed and robust physicality to formalized postures hinting at Baroque iconography. A flurry of gestures and forms meander between the representational and the abstract, the elegant and the awkward. The tension visible within the piece is meant to challenge how the viewer categorizes and ranks certain forms on stage and, ultimately, how meaning is constructed.
