Fusion Opening Night Performance
This short piece created for Fusion Youth Dance Company for our opening night performance explores, through choreography and movement, themes of physical and emotional connections to light and its transient nature. It considers how light connects us to the past, present and future. Performed beside Wave Garden in Union Terrace Gardens, the performance starts at 6.30pm.
