5 Breaths

5 Breaths (2005)

Commissioned and premiered by Mocean Dance
Choreography: Roger Sinha
4 dancers
30 minutes

Do we control time or does time control us? What can happen in a second? A minute? A year? Detail and speed are reflections of the society we live in, and their control is becoming increasingly apparent on everything from insignificant activities to extraordinary events. 5 Breaths is a meditation on time and how it influences us.  Weaving moments of chaos and meditative calm, this provocative work is athletic, explosive and poignant.
