Stephen Pelton Dance Theatre, choreography by Stephen Pelton from movement devised by the company
Music – the haunting laude by Gavin Byrars was deeply felt. Bearing witness to a process of grieving, of sorting through loss and pain of emptiness. Considering the afterness of passing.
There are perhaps other things to say in response to this piece – like a poem – but I think I will let this one just sit as it is, and be thankful to witness.
P.S. I know there was a lot Bay Area History that also sat with me in the audience, I could feel (and see) it, but didn’t feel like writing that part. Sometimes dances just need to be.
