|Title of work||
The languid quality of sleep is juxtaposed with the entanglement of thought and emotion that forms our dreams. Nocturnus related to Sights and Settings in that it was created with sectional music and movement. The choreographer used the music as a vehicle to express ideas which are outside the immediate sense of the music, but are related to it. The series of sections follow the structure of the music. The idea is the notion that during sleep, and in our dreams we live through and resolve many aspects of our waking experience of life. Neil believes our sub-conscious is often a disregarded aspect of life and yet one vitally important in assisting us to make sense of and resolve stress, conflict and emotional problems.
