This is another work in the series of surface explorations. As the title of the work implies, the performer is “hitting it sideways”; in this case, horizontally on the floor. The performer is seen gyrating on the floor with a lot of twisting motions. She rhythmically and percussively thumps her hands on the floor while performing various slithering movements.

Re-mastered 2014.
