This work played with the dance-like movements of the majestic bird, the peacock.
Strut, was one of the first online collaborations between Cylene and Jessica. Cylene selected the music and created an outline of movement prompts and stage directions. Then Jessica choreographed set movement phrases and moments of improvisation within Cylene's guidelines to finalize this work. This way of working became a major part of their collaborative creative process for future works.
