7 Sections plus introductory chant.
Section one sets the tone for the work very clearly. The audience are introduced to the ligh1ng, forma1ons and movement phrases which become clear without distrac1on from narra1ve or any vocals from the dancers. The ligh1ng grid dictates posi1on, so although there is a sense of fun, the dancers are quite restricted. Much of the movement in this sec1on comes from the named movement phrases developed by dancers in the ini1al choreographic development. These phrases are performed in linear forma1ons and developed in various ways as the dancers travel through the lighting.
