is a physical contemporary piece based on the development of the One Move Technique, a concept that constructs choreography based on only one move and its experimentations. PLASIX is now being developed into a theatre piece, where dancers travel through unexpected places in a short amount of time through a juxtapositional metamorphosis of contrasting locations. The continual and seamless morphing of one location to the next is used to take the audience on an engaging emotional journey.
