9000 STEPS


Based on the act of walking, rich in significations, 9000 Steps constantly moves through a series of modifications relating to the individual as much as our shared organizations. Danced on a stage covered in salt to the seminal score of Drumming by composer Steve Reich, this piece takes place between the foot and the stage. Curves and circles inspired by geometric systems and mathematical sequences derived from the Fibonacci sequence are worked into the space and the salt in a radiant work which is very much the signature piece of Joanne Leighton.
