Tools for Instant Composition

Textural Threading Technique (TTT) is a generative dance modality for synthesizing emergent dance, vocabulary rooted in one’s personal dance history and contemporary entries to dancing. TTT draws from international dance genres where hands are an active part of the dance- relating to and coordinating with space, the body and the ground. The technique can be used to create minimal choreography, to genre-bend complex improvisation and to cultivate inherent, global and historical expressions of Muse in solo contemporary performance. Prior to composing dancers work with tools to align the performative body. The dancer tracks and instigates action and presence by approaching dance as a relational activity.
