Choreographed by Daniel Gomez and performed by Peter D’Souza, Mudable is a solo that explores one’s ability to adapt, and be capable and open to accepting change. The piece is inspired by constant change that happens in our lives. Living within streetdance vocabulary, Mudable explores how we interact with different styles of music while moving through different emotions.
