The stimulus for my dance was based on lyrics from the track ‘Noose Of Jah City' by the artist King Krule. ‘Suffocated in concrete/ It took a hold of me/ Put me on repeat' Upon first impressions I understood these lyrics to follow the story of the track, being about depression and suicide, in which the character dies by falling from a building to his death.
