In this work, Alam sets out to awaken his own body and spirit. “What can I bring to this dance form? Why does it need me?” Within an electronic soundscape, he establishes a non-linear time frame. As he articulates rhythmic patterns, emotion and compositional form merge. His visceral, nuanced dance reaches out across the space, but also into the depths of his body.
