The Laws of Motion


The Laws of Motion reveals underlying meaning in classical ballet—an expression of Newton’s Universe. A poetic rumination on what it is to be a classical dancer, based on ideas about dance expressed by two giants of choreography: George Balanchine (“movement in space to music”) and William Forsythe (“the imposition of Euclid’s geometry on the human form and then setting that in motion.”).
