Departures

Bachtrack/Carla Escoda
The movement was weighty yet light, skimming the ground, apart from sudden breathtaking moments of flight. Bodies stacked to make curves on curves; dancers pulled each other with great daring into sweeping arcs; trios revolved in tight intimacy. Notable in scarlet, Xuan Cheng and Brian Simcoe connected spectacularly and effortlessly, in an almost-playful mood.” (2017)
