Programme Note

DANCE is dedicated with much love to my father, Leslie Clyne.

Dance, when you're broken open.
Dance, if you've torn the bandage off.
Dance in the middle of the fighting.
Dance in your blood.
Dance, when you're perfectly free.

— Rumi

The work is in five movements according to the five lines of the poem.

I when you're broken open
II if you've torn the bandage off
III in the middle of the fighting
IV in your blood
V when you're perfectly free
