Throughout the early 1970s, Ryan used video to explore the dynamics of human interaction in threes, defining "triadic behavior" as that which has the ability to "stabilize long-term relationships between three people." Ritual of Triadic Relationships includes exercises in which participants use sound and movement techniques to illustrate Ryan's theory of triadic behavior. An interview with Ryan by Willoughby Sharp is included. Triadic Ritual updates Ryan's earlier work with this provocative dynamic.
