√Čtoile Polaire

Choreography by: Eliot Feld

Music by: Philip Glass

Etoile Polaire means “North Star” and an expressive ballerina dances the solo as though she might be dreaming of a distant star, creating repeating patterns of line and form as she moves lithely across the stage (or sky?). The piece begins and ends with the dancer’s striking silhouettes against a backdrop that suggests a sunrise or sunset.
