Protective Coloring for Pointe and Cello

A duet for dancer and cellist. Oddly percussive virtuosity by the cellist is echoed in the dancer. “People refer to this dance as the one where I am like a wolf, a vicious loner, angsty, deer-like. I let loose the rawness of the pointe shoe, it’s lethal, dangerous qualities, playing with off-balance, velocity, slipperiness, sound, improvisation, Butoh-inspired face and mouth, and then I tap into the exquisite lush waltz sections with all the heart a beast can muster.”
