RWB sat down with Peter Quanz to discuss his upcoming piece, Luminous as part of RWB's fourth and final show of the 2011-12 season. Playful, intimate and poignant, this gorgeous new work examines relationships at different stages of life through a series of duets that range from adolescent love at first site to the deep emotion of a mature relationship and the connection that lasts even after death.
“I was given a quote from Michael Ondaatje’s The English Patient that says ‘we die containing a richness of lovers and tribes.’ Ondaatje believes that the people we have in our lives influence us and change our outlook, change our personality, change our character and develop who we are,” said Quanz. “[For Luminous] I set up a series of duets where each dancer performs with two different people and by doing so they show different qualities of themselves.”
