Inspired by Walt Whitman's "A Child says: What is the Grass?" this 10 minute ending of the larger work embodies the theme of transcendentalism from the piece. Characteristic of Deadfall Dance, the movement contains elegant and angular lines juxtaposed against falls and redirections of energy. This version is from our most recent full length concert "White" which pulled together pieces of a similar theme.

Choreography: Judith Wombwell

Deadfall Dance, directed by Judith Wombwell, was founded to cultivate creative
collaborations and to explore innovative techniques of developing movement.
Besides the natural kinesthetic implications, the name derives from the Native
American tradition of making use of downed wood; in a similar fashion, Deadfall
Dance uses available resources. Deadfall consists of a group of artists located in the
Greater Boston area. The work is strongly influenced by post-modern dance, the visual
arts, multi media work, and is largely driven by explorations of literature, philosophy
and man’s relationship to the natural world.
