The dance begins with the slaves dancing individually using sad, slow movements. Then the soldiers circle the slaves and surround them using strong movements. The slaves manage to escape but they have nowhere to go. In pairs, we choreographed some moves where the soldiers force them back into the middle.
Then the music changes and we work together in groups to drag the blocks for the pyramid.
The last part is a bit like follow the leader as everyone walks round together and form a pyramid which is 2D.
