THE GOLDEN MEAN (LIVE)
Ballet in one act

Length
70 min

Created at Vancouver 2010 Cultural Olympiad, Vancouver, March 12, 2010*

“ - de profundis - soft virtuosity - state of grace - multiple intelligences conversing - the golden mean - time regained. The beings performing on stage will appear to have come from a strange yet friendly future; in an absolutely scintillating acuteness of sensory perception, in which the underlying processes are laid bare, they allow us to listen to our senses in a serene and unprecedented way. The Being is a field of exploration, a crucible of possibilities; here it is on the verge of a thought-provoking and amourous mutation."
