Open your eyes and ears. This is an invitation to observe and to listen. A
light, minimalist, carefully crafted dance that sensitively responds to Glenn
Gould’s rendition of Beethoven’s Sonata No.13.
A “Sonata for the Body”, Beautiful Dance explores movement as an
acoustic, as well as a simply visual device; to achieve that peculiar
sensitivity that occurs when each of the senses is isolated, and only then
brought into play with each other.
