Abstract: Images is a non-literal dance revealing the visual designs and dynamics produced by bodies moving through space. The visual effect of groups of bodies, the designs they make as a group, the designs made by the individuals of the group, and the effect of groups of bodies or individual bodies passing in space and superimposing themselves on one another as they move are the elements explored in this dance. The dance is in eight sections and uses a total of six dancers. Section one uses all six dancers to show the designs of two groups moving on diagonals. There are three dancers in section two: two dance the same movement while the third moves between and around them with a variation of the movements of the two dancers. The third section is a second dance using all dancers; this section is one of structured improvisation in which the basic movement is a walk and the floor pattern is the planes perpendicular and parallel to the audience. Section four is a duet showing the visual effect of variations of tempo and order of movement. Section five is a solo emphasizing the body designs used in the other sections.
