A lush, sensual and poignant response to Rachmaninoff's Sonata for Cello & Piano in C Major.
In the luxurious "A Moment Before ..." set to music by Rachmaninoff, six dancers in satin pants and tunics fling and twirl themselves with controlled abandon, often in a flurry of quicksilver movement. Blink and you'll miss a gravity-defying leap with an off-kilter twist, a one-leg extension or a sudden takedown. The dancers squeeze every bit of honey from the intricate comb of choreography.
