Critically acclaimed “Ghost” is a show steeped in poetry, of being in the zone, in humor and in dazzling technical precision. They approach the body in an exploration of the subtleties of breathing in relation to movement, sounds and rhythm. The result is a complex, structured and acrobatic dance that literally merges with the music. The breath, like a vibration, elegantly traverses the bodies and gestures of the dancers and forges a powerful connectivity within the group, giving rise to organic and unusual forms of movement.
