Veil: Two Sisters is the culmination of over two years development including travel to India. Created by NYC choreographer Cynthia Berkshire, the multimedia performance reveals two sisters lured into a link between the earthly and heavenly realms, as one sister calls forth the other from death. A poignant vision of our emotional and psychic lives, the experiential program invites the public to connect to their own processes of reckoning.
Berkshire's work is original, blending realistic and abstract gesture and phrasing. Progressing with a sense of both unraveling and holding back, a simplicity expands into motion and emotion as circles, white flowing fabric, falling marigolds, and a mysterious chorus of spirits accompany the reunion of two sisters and their process of forgiveness.
