Work Overview

"We are all broken, that's how the light gets in"

- Ernest Hemmingway

De-Voir was composed in collaboration with choreographer Hayley Page for the 2017 Hamburg Ballet Young Choreographer's Series. The solo piano work was performed onstage alongside a pas de trois with the following notes forming the common ground between movement and music:

In the stillness of light we are left with ourselves. Our shadows and demons, our hopes and aspirations… all elements converge to create the present self. Yet there are moments when we are reminded. When a sliding door opens into the past and questions are asked as to how we could have changed where we now stand, and how things may be different.

In essence we are memory alone. How this is to be rests upon the future we shape within each fleeting moment of each day. Neither in presence nor future, our sense is borne of fractures in time; what we choose to see and what we deny to behold.
