Title of work

Tazydans

Synopsis

Tazydans was conceived as a pure movement piece that could be performed in various spaces and for various ages. The structure permitted flexibility in length and order yet maintained precise choreographed movements. The energy of the dancers and their immediate connection with the public created a moment of just enjoying dancing with no frills.
