This is the story of SHE, with no beginning and no end, raising more questions than giving answers. It starts at the core, and plunges us in, drawing us to its flame like moths scorched and fluttering mesmerized.  SHE depicts the mystique of femininity, inviting us to ride her endless cycle of seduction, aloofness, loss, hope, vulnerability and strength. SHE stands in all of us, a haunting celebration of contrasts coming together in Truth. Choreographed and artistically directed by Angelo Bonello.
