Mossyard is a tombolo, at low tide a vast sandy beach connects to rocky outcrop interspersed with shell beaches. At high tide the sea rises from both sides leaving a sandy causeway to the islets. The nature of this space presents an ever changing, time based theatrical landscape. The surrounding vista poses little in the way of obvious man-made intervention allowing the possibility of an uninterrupted mental and physical connection to this wild environment.

This somewhat alien landscape presents a challenging environment to the dancer. Tidal waters, sand, rock and weather patterns provide unusual parameters for spatial experimentation within surfaces, texture, and articulation of the body.
