some poetic thoughts…

Dance of Decay: Compositions of Decomposition.

returning to the organic body

three artists explore
dance as decaying 
metabolic matter moving from the interiors of muscle memory
impermanence intuited
exuding its beauty within formlessness
a temporal space undoing habitual desires as
flesh
weight
bones
give way
yielding an evolving composition of decomposition.
