she is not a comfortable thing

The four dancers sweat, struggle, and concentrate. They are covetable and polite, thoughtful and bright. Things lurk beneath the surface, sometimes erupting and offering clarification or complication. These women stampede your vision with power and ferocious vulnerability, whip the space up with their movement, and wipe it down with their sweat-damp haunches before striding out on their own muscular legs.
