Tristissimo (25 min)
A dance portrait of a couple who seek contact, seek to touch but repel each other’s every move.
As the dancers gravitate towards each other’s desire the reality of their separation becomes relentless, tender and touching. Based upon Wagner’s nineteenth century romantic tragedy of Tristan and Isolde, Tristissimo relays the sadness of the dancer’s spirit, a physical and electric performance leading to a dramatic finale. www.ceccompany.org
