Each hunting action requires concentration, attention and self-annihilation, blending in to the environment and listening to internal (bodily) and external impulses. All it takes to quickly release the tension to trigger a swift act to catch the hunted. The principle of hunting is internalised, but outwardly it serves as the “clashing” among the dancers, whilst inhale-exhale-freeze-action-reaction are effectively the connective tissues of the performance. The meditative, humorous and sensual signatures of individual dancers emerge through the concentration and release of tension which reveals the role of an individual in a group – and a group within an individual – all as a part of human life in a community or as a process showing us images of our insanity, egoism, vulnerability, hope. A high-resolution dance performance that tackles universal themes of the human condition with a great deal of subtlety and humour.
