Against a backdrop of Nordic music mixed with techno, four physically engaged bodies launch themselves into a joint invocatory awakening. Kevin Martinelli draws on the energy of Jumpstyle, a phenomenon that emerged on the internet and involves brief and rapid dance moves based on a combination of jumps, rounds and powerful choreographic momentum. One Step Harder constitutes a tribe struggling with its anxieties and finding an outlet in primitive trance and the exaltation of dance.
