Details of the hand is an atmospheric trio following an improvisational score developed by choreographer Joanna Young.


3 dancers connect with each other and the world around them playfully and tenderly. The trio culminates in a powerful solo by dancer Mervyn Bradley. Mervyn Bradley conjures the forces of the natural world composing the world around him.

The dancers were beautiful; from the measured, dynamic movements of the all-male duet, to the warm flow of the structured improvisation of the trio. I wanted to dance in that trio too, they made it look like so much fun. The way they connected with us as an audience is to me a huge part of what dance is about.
