This work is structured not as a dance but as a series of posturings taken directly from delicate terra-cotta figurines found in Tanagra, an ancient Greek town in Boeotia. Gestures arranged in continuous phrases suggest ordinary, yet idealized, activities, such as fastening the shoulders of a tunic, adjusting a sandal, kneeling, lying down to rest and rising. It is an excellent study in typical Duncan slow style.
Study of constant movement flow
