for voice and a dancer(s)
[The speaker need not be visible to the audience.
The assumption is that the dancer(s) responds to the utterance.

completely wedged before and behind
for ever on the move in leisurely search
a formless and frantic methodology
absorbing in its flurry, surging
a narrative of being struck by the same hand thrice
mouths fitted with heavy doors of iron
a clashing in an insufferable anguish
nameless invisible domineerings
a bell struck by lightning to silence
spine severed as a vain thing
