Attitude, The Dancers’ Magazine U.S. & CANADA
The dancers were anything but ordinary…. Every choice made by the choreographer assisted them in locating the emotional roots, from how she shaped the space/divide between them, to how she sparingly used unison, and the extremes of weight, tension and dynamics.
Fall 2009: Pat Catterson

The central theme of this piece is communication or the lack thereof in an encounter between a modern day metropolitan man and woman.  Examination into the emotional aftermaths of these encounters and how they are manifested in the physical body were subjects dissected. Two extreme styles of movement are employed: strong and impulsive, even jerky physicality contrasted with a more fluid, trancelike, releasing quality. During the live performance, a video projection is displayed on the rear wall capturing each of the dancers’ facial expressions throughout the performance. In one view the entire and microscopic angles are exposed.
