REVIEW – ‘Abraham.In.Motion dances human struggles to life at Hancher’

‘The motions of the dancers feel deeply personal and intimate, and while they are close to each other, they appear to be very much alone. This sense of shared experience without awareness of each other is broken when suddenly two women bend towards each other and touch, creating an unexpected focal point. Throughout the piece, these subtle moments of contact emerge as the dancers touch heads, or place their hands on another’s lower back to draw them up from a still, bent-over plié. These moments are made powerful by their infrequency, and by the fact that these touches seem more at home in natural human interaction than dance technique.’
