Trails & Grooves expands the research of the solo Farmer Train Swirl and explores the dynamic relations walking and running bodies can entertain with each other.
Starting from walking, the dancers will draw individual and collective trails through space, designing the landscape for the piece to unfold into. Not only will the design of trajectories and their intertwining be a way to spatialize House dance footwork, but also to generate it. As the dancers gain momentum, their trajectories will start interfering with one another. Collisions will occur, altering the regular course of their walks and runs. Gradually, these encounters will give rise to new stepping rhythms and lead the dancers' gates to morph into complex feet constellations.
