Flow and interruption 2: one long phrase

A short dance that consists of one long phrase

As you start to dance pay attention to the way each movement, idea, happening gives rise to the next. Note this in yourself (and perhaps through writing on the page). 

Take pleasure, without wallowing, in this transitional mode of operating.

Start to reduce the gaps in-between, such that the body is in constant 'flow' - movement without pauses, highlights, hesitations, glitch's.  
Perhaps, as Rainer would have said, we could work towards an improvisation that is a short dance that consists of one long phrase.
This phrase might be said to have flow.... 
What is the nature of this flow?
