Static camera, can see full stage. Can follow choreography clearly. Costumes unitards with black and white sections. No set, plain backdrop. Lighting rises and falls throughout, casting light and shadow effects onto backdrop. Semi-improvised sections of dance. Live music. Note: the music for earlier performances of Dipping Wings was Witold Lutoslawski’ s String Quartet (1964). In this performance the music is a Simon Waters commission (1986). Choreography has been substantially reworked from earlier performances in line with the new music.
