A prayer in music for dancer/mime and orchestra, in which the highly-detailed score of gestures for the former, drawn from the devotional vocabulary of various religions, creates an atmosphere in which the spatialized music of the orchestra can resonate. A deeply felt process of merging contemporary Western culture and the Eastern tradition within an essential but highly evocative stage setting.
