Body/Soul is a multi-disciplinary exploration of LOVE and the many ways in which it appears in our lives. Word Dance Theater’s creative team of designers, directors, and choreographers, in addition to musicians and dancers, created a passionate world of “rooms of Love.”  Each room is a glimpse into an emotional landscape, from obsession to transformation, from intensely personal to universal.  At Dance Place we were able to layer in projections, stage lights, voice-over text, as well as present the Duncan Brahms Waltzes combined with 7 new dances choreographed in the Duncan style.

Performed at DancePlace in June 2015.
