In Petri-Dish seven dancers create their own rhythm from words and sounds and translate them into their movement resulting in a truly unified spectacle wherein the rhythm of their vocal chords play on the rhythm of their bodies. Through this exploration characters emerge and vanish, language is both meaningful and meaningless and Petri-Dish teeters on the edge of comedic.
