MUSIC Ludwig Van Beethoven — Symphony no. 9 in D minor, op. 125, Adagio molto e cantabile
I was inspired by how we all, no matter what paths we take, are heading in the same direction toward that final ascension — that moment where we leave our physical bodies behind and continue our journey into the unknown. I was also inspired by Annette, who I met and danced with at a Liz Lerman workshop. We all used one of Ms. Lerman’s composition exercises to create the movement phrases in this piece.
