"Secrets on the Way"

An excerpt (Schubertiana) from the first full performance, April 27, 2013 at the Osher Studio in downtown Berkeley. Conceived and choreographed by Kathryn Roszak; inspired by the poetry of 2011 Nobel laureate Tomas Tranströmer.

 

Performed by dancers Blythe Berg, Ramzi Jneid, Nitipat Pholchai, Lissa Resnick, and Linnea Snyderman, with readings by actor Earll Kingston.

"Kathryn Roszak's accomplished and spirited Danse Lumière has suavely and powerfully formulated interpretations of poems by the great Tomas Transtsrömer that beautifully capture the writer's lyric austerity."

- Sandra Gilbert, April 2013

"Choreography and visuals are enthralling. The dancers become an array of symmetrical and asymmetrical moves morphing from ballet to modern to animal-like steps, a place of unexpected lyrical motion and mortal danger."

- Sharon Coleman, Poetry Flash, 2009
