Air, is set to sections of Handel's "Dixit Dominus". Soaring high somewhere in a pink heaven, "Air" is an architectural suite of dances. In this meticulously constructed, highly musical work for 12 dancers each danced aria breathes lightness and air. "Air" explores the plight of an atheist soul yearning for some kind of heaven. “Ms. Pulvermacher¹s frisky musicality and aptitude for stillness sticks with you. Air, like a little slice of heaven, shines through the cracks.” (Gia Kourlas, The New York Times).
