Wet Road is a 45-minute work for four dancers (two women and two men) and a female skeptic/observer. Envisioning the body as obstacle and pathway - a site of hazardous entrapment and source of irresistible pleasure - the movement language revolves around leg trapping, fragile balances and a shared central axis. Wet Road imagines mating as an intensely danced dream-like blend of lust, trust, tenderness and threat.
