Nimbus

Contemporary dance solo

This contemporary dance solo is a journey into the internal conflicts humans undergo when their expectations, their dreams, their aspirations get broken. The rain of a nimbus (a dark and amorphous cloud) serves as a metaphor for that transitional moment in life when our hopes suddenly are washed away, leaving us in a state of loss and confusion. And when one thinks all is over, a new light appears, a rainbow of possibilities emerges, encouraging us to rebuild ourselves, to find the strength within.
