This is one of the most beautiful choreographies of Foofwa d'Imobilite
and dance of Foofwa d'Imobilite and Maud Liardon.

I do relate this to avatar-work but only tangentially.
Look at for example.

16. The union of mindfulness and forgetfulness (dran pa dang dran min
gyi zung 'jug).
17. The union of bliss and emptiness (bde stong zung 'jug)
18. The union of objects and action (bya byed zung 'jug).
19. The union of the generation and the completion stages (skyes rzdogs
zung 'jug).
20. The union of purity and impurity (dag ma dag gi zung 'jug).
21. The union of (those) with and without forms (gzugs can gzugs med kyi
zung 'jug).
