Here we see the six dancers performing a dance on the tip of Pike Island, before they all dispersed to their own sites. At the same time, we see what their dancing hand cameras recorded, catching sky, sand, and body parts.

These dance movements were created by the six dancers. At first, each dancer chose one of the 12 points of the icosahedron; next they each took a second point, so that all 12 points (4 diameters of the three planes) were “touched” while they were moving. Then we went down to the Mississippi River, and all were asked to commune with the river, and come up with a phrase that would connect to the river yet still touch their two points. The Artistic  Director edited these into a short dance.

The icosahedron is part of Rudolf Laban’s theory of Space Harmony.
