Technique

Gail Corbin continues the work of Doris Humphrey’s simple principles and vast potential of two essential movements: fall and recovery – the human body’s natural tendency to seek equilibrium in response to the constant pull of gravity. Humphrey created from these principles a logical, lyrical and naturally dramatic vocabulary of dance – dynamic, versatile, expressive of human thought and feeling.

resistance to and yielding to gravity”
