A dance solo performed by Robert Hylton. The work is based on the fusion between contemporary dance and popping, and a somatic approach to both forms. Different musical genres are explored on each performance allowing new senses and physical investigation of the forms to manifest through improvisation and musicality to create a modern and intriguing dance experience.

Move Solo

  • Duration:
  • People on road: 3 (1 performer, 1 technician, 1 director)
  • Freight: No freight necessary


Move Solo explores the bodily experience of a popping practitioner’s improvisational practice through the ambiguous nature of the body, by way of exploring the dancing body through the rhythmic patterning of the voice, individual choice and the body as an ever evolving source of movement possibilities and patterns.

Performed by Paris Crossley, Move is adapted from the short screendance film of the same name.
