This is a solo creation based on a composition for piano by French composer, Gerard Pesson. The music was inspired by the writings of Pierre Albert Jourdan, whose one-line poem ‘La lumiere n’a pas de bras pour nous porter’ (Light Doesn’t Have Arms To Carry Us) forms the title of the musical composition.

At times a silent film, at times an intimate conversation, at times a scenographic installation, this work proposes a way of interpreting the music which takes it out of the realm of auditory sensation and suggests other visual phenomena in which the music resides. Yet, the structure of the composition is all the time dictating the visual material created.
