Thought through movement. Human Caracol sees the journey as an itinerary that is open to experience, a story made up of the unexpected, of mobile and fixed intensities. A nomadic portrait of choreographer and dancer Steve Paxton. Steve Paxton was one of the founders of the Judson Dance Theatre and Grand Union, and a pioneer of Contact Improvisation, and part of the Merce Cunningham dance company in the early sixties. In this documentary based on the tactile gaze, Steve Paxton talks to choreographers María Muñoz and Pep Ramis as they prepare organic compost.
