Equinox Images

(1988)

This elegant suite is based on the sparkling interpretations of tradional tunes most frequently associated with the year end holiday season, as interpreted by virtuoso pianinst George Winston.

 

This work is the product of Choreographer Rod Rodgers' poetic explorartion of seasonal (primal) anxiety over gradually disminishing sunlight and the traditional "festivals of light" as celebrated in many cultures in different parts of the world.  Annually reassured by the "triumph of light over darkness" as the hours of sunlight achieve parity and days begin lengthening again people of different lands exalt at the end of winter and turn eagerly towards the promise of Spring.

 

Under guidance of noted visual artist CATTI who for the original collaboration developed costumes and set material, reflective surfaces and translucent elements suggesting crystal ice forms were incorporated into the work.
