Szymon Kaliski - Or Delicate
Szymon Kaliski's beautiful 'Or Delicate' provides the backdrop to a contemporary dance performance "This Arm beneath Your Head" by the students of Brigham Young University. The performance explores the cultural and personal coping mechanisms experienced after loss. It addresses the strains that grief can places on relationships and how that is addressed by individuals and society alike. This Arm Beneath Your Head is a powerful manifest of human resilience whilst suffering and a beautiful exploration of finding peace. This dance employs a personal movement vocabulary that is both fierce and compelling, evoking the strong emotions of grief and hope.
Choreographed by Liz Dibble, this piece revolves around the loss of figures in her own life.
The song “Or Delicate” is playing throughout the entire piece.
