In-Between the Real and the Ideal—A choreography for “Alla Hornpipe” from Water Music is formed by the choreography of repeated gestures. The reflections create a partnership between image and music while expressing the nature of performance as choreographed movement of pose-to-pose gestures, or the conductor’s breaths drawn at certain lengths and depths between intervals of time. The work explores the connection between the real and the ideal, image and sound, object and subject, shadow and projection, such as a thing reflected on the surface of water.
