Epilogue – Here, where all things come to the close...
‘Though here at journey's end I lie, in darkness buried deep,
Act 1 – Curtain call
“No, I think about him every day. Last thought before I fall asleep and first thought when I wake up. I talk to myself all day about him, even when I'm talking to somebody else, even when I'm talking to you now, I'm talking to myself about him…”
Act 2 – The thoughts that should not be in your head
The dance world is too small in lots of ways – it's too intense, it rattles around itself.
Act 3 - Never not going to...
God long ago drew a circle in the sand exactly around the spot where you are standing right now. I was never not coming here. This was never not going to happen. – unknown poem -
Act 4 - Under the feathers of the white swan
Ballet's image of perfection is fashioned amid a milieu of wracked bodies, fevered imaginations, Balkan intrigue and sulfurous hatreds where anything is likely, and dancers know it. -Shana Alexander-
Act 5 - The ways the world stops turning
“Anything that happens, happens. Anything that, in happening, causes something else to happen, causes something else to happen. Anything that, in happening, causes itself to happen again, happens again. It doesn't necessarily do it in chronological order, though.” - The hitchhikers guide to the galaxy
Act 6 - Brothers
"Our siblings. They resemble just enough to make all the differences confusing, and no matter what we choose to make of this, we are cast in relation to them our whole lives long." Susan Merrell

We dancers are very lonely people. We work together but we are very much self-made, self-centred individuals. -Anonymous-
Act 8 - The secondary effects of shockwaves (part 1)
To love is to destroy and to be loved is to be the one destroyed. – City of Bones
Act 8 - The secondary effects of shockwaves (part 2)
Fear is a wonderous thing. It makes you coil into yourself, it makes you whimper. It makes all the worst parts of you shine into the light of day. It brings you forth until you see yourself in your black mirror
Act 9 – Implosion
- I took a deep breath and listened to the old bray of my heart. I am. I am. I am. ~ Sylvia Plath
Act 10 – Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?
“Alice: Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here? / The Cat: That depends a good deal on where you want to get to / Alice: I don't much care where. / The Cat: Then it doesn't much matter which way you go. - ‘Alice in wonderland’
Act 11 – … We are destiny
"Destiny is real and she's not mild-mannered. She will come around and hit you in the face and knock you over and before you know what hit you, you're naked - stripped of everything you thought you knew and everything you thought you didn't know - and there you are: A bloody nose, bruises all over you, and naked. And it's the most beautiful thing" C. JoyBell
Act 12 - Adagio
Fear is only an illusion. It is the illusion that creates the feeling of separateness, the false sense of isolation that exists only in your imagination – and which will shake to its foundations by one single helping hand. (adapted)
