“A contemporary work examining the compelling, enduring and inspired relationship between sculptors Camille Claudel and Auguste Rodin.” (Cynthia Gutierrez-Garner)

and

_Bred in the Bone _

Houlton/Pärt, anonymous

Originally choreographed for MDT in 1997, this piece draws from structured ideas of ritual and repetition playing with the perception of boundaries.
