A classical trio, two dancers and three visual artists will simultaneously interpret the mood and inspiration of each musical piece – each field in its own manner.
As the musicians begin each classical movement, the dancers will perform a 15-second choreography inspired by the mood and feeling of that piece. As the dancers pause and then remain still after this short performance, the artists begin to depict the dancers frozen in their pose, through various mediums of bas-relief sculpture, painting and illustration.
