Poem: The Desperate Heart by John Malcolm Brinnen
Length: 7 minutes, 30 seconds
Long full skirt
Notation: 1973-1976, good quality
Danced to the
accompaniment of both poetry and music, this is a dramatic remembrance
of a lost time - a lost love.
It requires a
female dancer of especially strong technical ability, able to
articulate the contrasting dynamics of the movement which convey
the emotional and dramatic intent. A fine solo, very much of
its time but still viable.
