Synopsis

Cate O'Brien used a rich texture of spatial patterns and created a sense of a windswept landscape in this work. "Cate's wonderful musicality infused the movement choreographed to Steve Reich's Counterpoint. The costumes (full length culottes) enhanced the movements beautifully and added to the swirling effect." Jenny Kinder
