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.
