The Instrument, Maya M. Carroll



Production Details / Press Releases

A collaborative dialogue between gesture and sound, AMAR emerges as a domain in which silence, quietness, wordlessness and the actions that interrupt them, withdraw their concentration from one another in a circular motion. In this interplay, that questions myth-folk relationships through dancing the fine line between tradition and invention; scenes evolve in an instant. The atmosphere surrounding them is filled with memories, and the undeniability of a restful haven within intense manifestations of desire.
