No Comfort Zone explores the idea of contemporary creation as interaction between different languages and research practices, and considers the discomfort, and risk, of entering into the unknown as important elements within the creative process. Both music and movement are subject to a process of deconstruction and reconstruction. In the movement we seek a non organic dimension: neither fluid, nor smooth, rather; a tension capable of restoring the fragmented nature of a “continuity constantly receding”. Listening to Beethoven.
