Most of this dance is based on a single, ingenious device. During the continuous circling of a group, individual dancers cut through the center, running directly toward the audience. Each, in turn, "escapes," without interrupting the running circle, then returns to the group as though to reaffirm community allegiance. If this dance is meant to be a study in socialization, the choreographic message is simple and eloquent.
