“Rain Dog Code for Four”
Rain Dog Code for Four is piece about relationships and decision making. About space being transformed, and links being created. About how the dancers act and react according to the information they receive from each other. It is about finding complexity within very simple actions.
In Rain Dog Code for Four, the dancers evolve through a set structure using only improvised material. The coherence comes from a common movement sequence on which the whole piece is based. This original material has been taken into every possible direction in order to create a new and surprising environment where the dancers can, each time they perform the piece, explore something different.
