Physicology looks at dance technique from the fundamental principles that move a body through space. It is a methodology that searches for a better understanding of how the physics of movement work, how the body connects to the floor and with itself, and how the dancer can connect with the space and the people in it. It uses imagery and imagination to expand the dancers’ ability to unify or isolate their body and gain a deeper understanding of their technique. These fundamentals are then expanded into richly detailed and highly physical dance phrases.
