A woman struggles to hold herself together; she goes over it again and again, trying to figure it out and leave it behind
but old habits die hard.
Punctuated by bold stark gestures, the choreography resists and submits to the tension between movement and stillness.
Trace Elements asks the audience to witness the discomfort and experience the patience needed to hold one’s nerve
in an internal battle.
It is a silent plea for the past not to be repeated.
