In the atmospheric stillness before nightfall, a community of eight young dancers explores a range of human relationships through classical movement. Lyrical partnering reveals a romantic array of emotions. Aspects of relationships and changing emotions are danced in a twilight world and so, remain mysterious and elusive. Stephen Baynes is a Resident Choreographer of The Australian Ballet.
