  • “Falling” at WCD and Dance Matters 

    Anything But Absolute Zero at WCD April 27-29th 8pm.

    Falling explores the pleasure and the pain, the suffering and the euphoria of love. It follows the trajectory of a couple who journey from total vulnerability to complete estrangement, from naked trust to layers of barriers between them. Using music from Vivaldi’s  The Four Seasons, we see all seasons of the couple’s relationship. Moments ranging from the elation of infatuation, the symbiosis of partnership, the absurdity of sex, and the necessary back and forth struggle to remain together makes this new dance work a beautifully tragic take on love and loss.
