VS THE GOLD or The Older VS The Gold or Clown Bolero pins the desire to achieve perfection against the necessary surrender and openness needed for direct contact with an immediate source of inspiration. It encourages the gradual sight of our boxed in expectations and asks audiences to consider what tools are necessary in order to break free from the things that hold us back. It is an external experiment in putting the forms of clown and ballet in the same arena and it is an internal match between opposing desires. This is what happens when ballet takes a dip into the imaginal world, where possibilities open up and perfection is trumped by play.
