Temporal Trance:

Dancers: 7


"Temporal Trance" is a paean to Frank Chaves' dying mother, and consists of three discrete sections, a drama-filled structured opening concluding with a rapidly-paced finish. Chaves has remarked about this piece, "I explored... very different qualities of movement inorder to represent the different stages we all go through in death and the loss of a loved one."

Frank Chaves describes this work for seven dancers as an “exploration of three very different qualities of movement, culminating in a mesmerizing feast for the eyes, soul and spirit.” Temporal Trance is dedicated to Chaves’ mother, Maria.
