loopdiver: Struggling to Break Free

  • Aired: 07/25/2010
  • 01:45
  • Rating: NR
Here, the performers depict the struggle of maintaining precision within the loops. The dancers actually do feel a sense of frustration and exhaustion in this moment in the piece. The dancers are allowed to improvise for just a few moments before the loop catches them again and they are sucked back in, returning to where they started.
