An antique dance, a courting ritual.
A dandelion flower to blow desires.
The double time bourrée dance is full of romantic and loving meanings, it is almost a theatrical transposition of dynamics of seduction. The dancers come close, reaching towards each other, then they turn away, find and avoid each other, without ever touching.
The dandelion flower is the spring oracle. The legend says that the lovers give their wishes to the flower and then blow them away to make them come true.
The soundtrack is made by Julia Kent: a contemporary bourrée based on the traditional structure.
