Speak for Yourself

Paul Lightfoot and Sol León bring Speak for Yourself (1999) back to the stage. The ballet is made to music by Johann Sebastian Bach and Steve Reich. The ballet's atmosphere is one of melancholy and mystery.  A curtain of drizzle gives the piece an intriguing final picture.

Sol León en Paul Lightfoot

Additional Credits
