“… the storm of dance joins the storm of music, culminating in a rousing finale, breathtaking in its spatial and rhythmic architecture.”
-Wendy Perron, The New York Times

The final piece in the jazz trilogy reveals an intricate world of counterpoint between one dancer and the Company, the dance itself and Dave Douglas’s music, and the frenetic energy of the movement and the Terry Winters set. Whether engaged in bold unison phrases or catapulting each other through the air, the dancers create an intriguing environment, at once easy-going and vitally expressive.
