Loss and Desire, 2003

Loss and Desire is a solo danced through a voyage of the four elements using water, dirt, and fabric.  The past is buried and the future is planted for renewal and rebirth in which the passion and desire for life can be felt. The imagery and text was motivated by the book “Death and the Dervish” by Mesa Selimovic about the Ottoman occupation of Bosnia.

Premiered at International Fringe Festival in Toronto, Canada, August 2003
