Fragile Vessels

"For me Fragile Vessels is asociated with the human spirit. We are all fragile vessels floating on life's endles sea. Some days with blue sky another with stormy wild sea. A ballet inspired by personal journey of separation, love and forgiveness set on passionate Sergei Rachmaninov's 2nd Piano Concerto"
