Director's Statement

I wanted to express strong female energy in the film since the music harks back to nature. It was intended to be a meditation on nature, especially for city dwellers who need to return to the natural rhythms of life. The talent and skill of the dancers manifested the feeling I wanted to express through their craft — making for a beautiful, graceful, and thoughtful reflection on the music.
