Choreographer's Note: Like many of my colleagues, I claim that some ballets are ‘pure dance’ and need no explanation. Aeolia for instance has no plot and is not about anything other than the movements and the music. Still, when seeing it in the rehearsal studio, I realize how futile the claims of abstraction in dance are. The three different personalities of the dancers interact with the affects of the music and turn so-called abstraction into a subtle form of story-telling. Aeolia, a tale of three soloists and a solo violin.
