This task is called Passive/Aggressive.

 

In it, Mr. Jones said:

“One person becomes the support

and the other person is leaning

and trying to give as much weight as they can.

They can either lift the person up

or they can all just collapse to the ground

or they can just walk out of it.

 

That’s where the menu gets very exciting:

When you see the combinations and the shapes.”

Trisha Brown        US        1936-2017

 

 choreographer
