Dissolve

This is a human story rather than a love story… with water.

Two characters meet, the first, a positive soul who reaches out to the second to draw them into a better world. Water and human touch are key elements in this story, where life forces play key roles.

Created and choreographed for Stockton’s central water fountain by Ruth Jones of Axial Dance. Commissioned by SIRF.
