Hold Me

Composer Aleksandra Vrebalov has woven varied and sometimes opposing aspects of traditional, classical, ethnic and modern themes into this dramatic, beautiful and almost epic piece of music. Her music has inspired me to look for extremes in the composition as well as intention in my movement material to then try to unite extremes and create a sense of wild, energetic wholeness and drama.
