Illusions of Her

Illusions of Her Choreography By Eryn Waltman Dancers: Marc Cardarelli, Joey Arrigo, Caroline Torti, Falyn Waltman, Lindsay Leuschner and Mia DiLena Loosing someone you love deeply can have a profound affect. The pain that loss brings evokes some very powerful responses from the human mind. “Illusions of Her” is a contemporary piece that portrays the individual who is unable to accept loss. In the face of an undeniable truth, a new reality is created and the individual finds himself withdrawn and suspended in the past, truly believing that the mental images he holds dear exist physically in his illusory world. For some, the journey back to a peaceful sate of mind is long, challenging and achievable – for others comfort and tranquility remain illusive and unattainable.

This piece is a true work of art. The choreography never strays from its sole purpose: to harness the raw emotions of the story and impose them onto the audience. Every dancer executed this choreography with nothing short of eloquence, merging beautiful technique with an undeniable connection with the dance, song, and each other. Having worked with Eryn in the past I have never been less than amazed by her work. This piece is hauntingly beautiful and deserves much recognition. congrats Eryn.
