Note: By The Snake deconstructs the roles and routines of couples dance forms to create a work that reflects a different social order. Zuk says, “I wanted to fabricate a folk dance. I wanted to invent a new kind of social dance with a strong sense of ritual and tradition but with different forms and values. I took ideas and conventions from the different traditions of dancing in couples and developed a new world from it.”
