Layer Three | Nottingham Contemporary | July 29th 2017 

"Layer Three is a contemporary dance exploration of how we become more truly human. As time passes, our experiences create new layers. This process is intimately associated with our growth and development but, sometimes, the new layers squeeze the layers beneath, suffocating them and preventing a truly liberating integration of our whole being. How would life be, if we could clearly orient ourselves among all of the layers and give each of them the room to breathe? If we could awaken all of the layers within us and include them in the ever changing, new, now, version of ourselves? It is this question that we seek to explore and answer through movement and music."
