Intention behind "Within Her Eyes" was create a dance film that maintained the emotional intensity and visceral energy of the live stage performance of "There We Have Been" and to portray an abstract tragic love story that is open for interpretation. Female dancer is constantly reaching, wrapping, balancing and falling on and around the male dancer.
Choreography contrasts the folding into him with the pulling away to highlight the pull she feels to her late lover whilst trying to allow herself to move on with a man who cares so much for her.
Male dancer never initiates or manipulates, he merely responds to her every devoted to her. He needs her as much as she needs him.
Mood is very tender, emotional and somber.
Intensity achieved by having the dancers perform in complete contact, totally dependent on eachother, with the female dancer never once touching the floor throughout the entire duet.
Creates a very unique vocabulary and style, both physically and emotionally.
Duet combines both the impressive physicality with a dark, emotional heart, resulting in a daring and intimate work that both moves the audience emotionally and inspires with its physicality.
