Without Stars/There We Have Been by James Cousins Company

This is the first time I heard of a dance that interprets a novel. There We Have Been and Without Stars are part of Haruki Murakami's Norwegian Wood. Instead of words, you can understand the story through the movements of the dancers. It's like blocking in a stage play but with graceful movements.

What impressed me was from There We Have Been were the female never touch the floor and the male lifts her up the whole time, Because of this, I am compelled to read the book. We were fortunate that the Philippines was the first to see it in Southeast Asia for the tour.

I got to watched it at PETA in Quezon City before it will be staged in CCP. For more theatrical productions, follow this blog or like L.E.N.S.blogs on Facebook.
