Twilight Courante

Choreography by: Stephen Baynes

Music by: George Frederic Handel

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.
