Title of work

Physical Affairs

Synopsis

Physical Affairs was created for seven dancers and was featured in the Tasdance season of the same name. The title related to Sandra's relationship with her body. She had spent so much time both here and in New York investigating her own movement style that it seemed she was having a love affair with her own body movement. Physical Affairs was divided into five sections, not necessarily their emotional connotations: Save, Fragment, Collapse, Surrender, Protect. Each section was quite distinct and was delineated by a complete blackout.
