In Hu(r)mano four dancers lift themselves into an atmosphere which runs parallel to that of the real, elevating into a dimension of collective human urban movement and their natural condition of vitality. This is a constant search for the meaning of dance and the value of movement resulting in an abstracted and mutated form – a shared search that is sought intuitively and a tuned to contemporary dialogue. These trans-humanized beings hold an imminence that moves them. Forming a statement that converges the multiple performers frame of mind and presenting that is contained within themselves.
