danish dance theatre @ the pillow

i went in to this performance with high expectations and the second piece on the program, kridt (chalk), lived up to them.

i think jennifer dunning said it best in her review:
"Mr. Rushton has managed to say something fresh about dying."
this is the second time this company has brought me literally to tears.
the press photos give a better sense of the piece than my description would.
here is the globe review.

the first piece, silent steps, was definitely good, but it just didn't have the same depth and intensity as kridt.
