Wally Cardona & Rahel Vonmoos: A Light Conversation
Friday + Saturday, September 17 + 18, 2010, 8 PM
Studio 2

A dialogue in movement between two artists, Wally Cardona and Rahel Vonmoos, A Light Conversation reflects on life being lived: choice, commitment, pleasure, sacrifice, boredom, aesthetics vs. ethics, the uncertainty of the future, and love – first love, erotic love, marital love, mature love, and friendship. The dancers inhabit a shifting environment of darkness and light, making sense of the ongoing change that is life, and the audience, seated on three sides of the stage, shares this intimate landscape.
