Jo Ha Kyu.
I don't know how this modest work would look on a proscenium stage; it was thoroughly at home in the open performing area of St. Mark's. Sometimes the shapes the dancers made were sharp, judolike. At other times they experimented with long, horizontal gestures. As their energy pursued new directions, it was accompanied by the rhythmic thudding of their bare feet on the shiny floor.
I liked their comradely attitude and the almost shy way in which they addressed the audience. It was a small oasis of searching dance, a work in progress that made one wish to see the completed choreography.
