This piece is born from the investigation of my own movement. From the start, we had begun with a fusion of movement incorporating urban dance styles, while working with many changes of dynamics and different textures. We set the material with special emphasis on articulating the deconstruction of the movement. It is a very physical piece and I want the dancers to seek themselves as interpreters through experimenting with the material; I like the movement to be honest and truthful. The interpretation from each dancer is born from the raw physicality of the piece.—Iker Karrera
