Broken Dancer


They told the broken dancer that she’d never dance again.

I canΒ  dance, she said.

No, they said, you’re broken. And they left her alone in the dark.

Then one day they found her on the floor with wings at her back and with a quiet smile she flew up into the sky.
And danced and danced and danced.

    Your pieces always have such a depth of emotion. I particularly like this piece… the colours, the mood, the blurriness… it’s fascinating.
