About this work:
Ah yes, the dichotomy between gestures and substance or, if you prefer, between quantity and quality. Do you really want to live in a world of meaningless gestures? This humorous multi-media piece is easy to put together and will give you a chance to get to know some dancers. The dance ensemble and pianist provide a visual/aural foundation while the solo dancer and narrator spew forth a steady stream of gestures. As for the trombone, well, you will have to decide if his part has substance or is just some more gestures. Remind you of life? Please contact the composer for performance materials.
