Mobile is a study in homogeneous tension for either a man or a woman in which all movements are of equal importance. This conception is supported by the image of a moving sculpture which also suggests the sustained and swaying character of the composition. A silver mask is worn with the intention of emphasizing the remote atmosphere of the work.
Requires a dancer able to control flow and inner tension. Movement is precise and subtle with small actions and not much locomotion. Choreographed in the Jooss-Leeder style.
