‘It touches me very much’

January 16, 2017

“I find it very beautiful. First of all, the costumes, the colours, the music, and I like the fact it is short pieces with stories that are previously explained to us. This way we understand what we are looking at.

“I also find [the dancers] extremely expressive. It’s really a play expressed in dance—dance and theatre together. The expression, the faces of the dancers—it’s very pretty, it’s superb!“


“I’ve been crying from the beginning. I’m very emotional. It’s pure emotion, the movements, the story.

[In the dance story about the persecution of Falun Gong in China], the little girl is on her knees, holding her pink banner, then there is all that emotion, then we see the banner is also shaking, and then we know that she is going to be hit, then all of a sudden she is saved by the divine. I haven’t stopped crying. … It touches me very much.“
