Choreography: Christopher Costantini
Music: Violin Concerto in E Minor, 1st Movement by Felix Mendelssohn
When I initially heard this piece of music on a transatlantic flight many years ago, I immediately knew it would one day be the inspiration for a piece of my choreography. The swelling crescendos and alternating leggieros of the score reflect the peaks and troughs of romance. While any relationship may ultimately be transient, the process through which one develops and evolves is captivating. My work explores these themes.
World Premiere: February 15-18, 2018 at the Todd Bolender Center
