Description V is a contemporary dance solo made in a rock'n'roll way that was born in the basements. The movements vary from aggressive and desperate stuggling into nice and sensitive dancing. The piece i set but there is space for a possibility to improvise. the peice lives in the moment and it is not too restrained by tight rules or limitations.
