## facts and figures - day 4 -

In this first sequence (1'2'3') we played with the concept of repetition by incorporating movements from different sections at various times. This 'flash back' allows the audience to recognise a movement, gives it an emphasis and perhaps guides the audience interpretation of the work in a specific direction. I also like to establish the basic line of the piece and then build on the top of it. I think it becomes easier for the audience to take the information in and it also gives me a stable structure to construct my work.

We also challenged the rhythm by counting in 3s but also dancing in 2s and 1s. If you watch from 0:12 to 0:23 we count it like this:

(123 - 123 - 123 - 123) (12 - 12 - 12 -12) (1 - 1 - 1 - 1)

The second section (2:18) shows a new sequence exploring the relationship between 3 dancers and 2 small triangles. The aim of this section is to introduce the 2 other shapes constituting the tangram: a square and a parallelogram. The square is created 2 times here: (3:03) and (3:12). We will keep adding material next rehearsal to construct the parallelogram and the medium triangle (T2).

The third section shows Adam's manipulation with T1 (3:36). He is accompanied by Laura and Rosanna mimicking his actions. A complete change of mind from day 3 where Laura and Rosanna danced the same sequence in unison with 2 small triangles. Both options are valid but we have decided to let Adam play with T1 so we could link 'Triangle 1' to 'Quartet T1' (5:12).

A small section is added to Quartet T1 where Adam takes his turn in becoming a triangle.
