A piece developed with and performed by a group of highly trained and exceptionally skilled dancers that revolves around virtuosity, vulnerability, fascism and freedom. Our research pertained to various physical and psychological limitations, crowd behavior, contagion, flocking, simultaneity, repetition, fascist signs and gestures, and a personal investigation into the concept of freedom – both what it means to the group and what it might mean to the viewer.
