you can see the meat clinging to the bones as they move through wide spaces. the stage lights wrapping around their frames like a brilliant skin.
youthful bodies rippling with strength and musculature; the semblance of benevolent grace where everything looks at ease.
long limbs, graceful arms, the spirals en pointe, and impossibly spread legs extended beyond the 180° and into space.
vitality itself is shamed in the shadows created by the luminescent bodies of these performers. they are beyond the corporeal self.
their shine extinguishes all sadness, all ire, and all doubt from the world.
we’re flying on lilting melodies and tympani.
and for a brief second,
you experience the infinite.
