Description

We follow the development of a piece of choreography from Motionhouse Dance Theatre's piece 'Delicate'. Kevin Finnan and Louise Richards explain how contact improvisation techniques create the initial material and how it is shaped and developed to reflect the narrative. Here this is an argument between a couple. Choreographic devices such as use of exaggeration and repetition are illustrated.
