Variations #1 ventures to submit to a schizophrenic physical desire for location and fixity, in opposition to a principle of continual change. In this work there is an encounter between four dancers and two musicians whose interplay, agreement and disagreement create a musical-choreographic composition. In a process of continuous difference and variation, Sadler illuminates the relationship between dance and music from a different perspective: when traditional principles of order are suspended, the dialogic relationship of art forms has to reinvent itself. As if in a delirium, the bodies set off in a playful search for direction and orientation.
