Descending Dreams of a Transparent Body

Four piano pieces embodied for a dancer in a room with a window facing the sky. At each chapter the eye of the camera brings us closer to the body. The dance meditates between earth and air, each frame breathes in a tangible and animated space.

The music lays a landscape within which one dreams, walks, initiates and surrenders. An intimacy of nearness within a contained space unveils multiple layers and foci. As we look closer, we engage more profoundly with depth and expansion.

The collaboration between choreographer Maya M. Carroll and composer W.A Mathieu began in spring 2020 through a correspondence of gratitude and appreciation towards the mastery of music and dance, and the wish to transfigure and re-create our space within our rooms, our minds and our hearts.

All piano improvisations are by W.A.Mathieu
