What is perfect about?

Time- the way we witness time and how it shapes us
It's about waiting, nurturing, growing ageing and changing

13

The costume

Simple and easy to wear
Both men wear white shirts and black trousers, all women wear black sleeveless dresses that are slightly different

14

The music

Electronic with no singing or speaking
The dancers add no sound
Music is split into clear sections which helps structure the dance

15

The lighting

Combination of lanterns and video projection. Lighting in the shadow section is very important- the dancer in front of the screen is lit by strange lanterns and the dancer behind is lit by a bright light so her shadow appears- the bright light is moved around so the shadow alters in size and position

Describe the lighting in the first section

A gobo is used letting through purple light onto a white syc which appears black.
