Photography by Haleigh Dalke   Underneath the Floorboards (2017)  was choreographed for the Second Avenue Dance Company’s third show of the 2016/2017 season. Inspired by Edgar Allan Poe’s eerie short story,  The Tell Tale Heart , the piece is dark and writhing with psychological perplexity and guilt. The cinematic approach to the piece and Zacharioglou’s exploration of the enigmatic psychology of individuals and their relationships to one another was her first works with a trio. The movement of the piece, reflecting the puzzle of the unexplained plot, resembles a serpent-like quality created by the three bodies in space. The movement creates ripples from one body to the next via their unison motion and weaving pattern. The music by Murcof although electronic in genre, fits with the scenario due to its stylistic qualities: glitch, modern classical, techno and minimal. The repetition and glitch beat echoes the anomaly of the situation and gives the movement the impetus for the wave sensations in the choreography. Intricacy and obscurity are at the core of the piece.
