Pas de Detour deals with obstacles, as we experience them in our lives and in the ways they can seemingly detour and derail us. These blocks can be our own emotions, such as fear, or the inevitable unexpected life events. This work for four to six performers physicalizes these ideas, sporting a robust and voracious movement vocabulary that bullets through the space at breakneck speed, hurtling into the air then plummeting to the ground, at the pell-mell pace indicative of modern life. In contrast is a fluid, mellifluous vocabulary that grounds and permeates the chaos of uncertainty and interruption with calm.
