Heart-felt dance

'Amu' is a dance work devoted to the heart. Created by Random Dance, it's premiering at Sadler's Wells. It was created in collaboration with heart-imaging specialists. Performances take place at 7.30 pm, from 15 to 17 September. Click here for more information. I am tempted to go, if only to see if it lives up to the promise, made in the billing, of 'questioning both the physical functions and symbolic resonances of the human heart'. As far as I know the physical function of the heart has beyond question for a considerable time, but I'm always happy to be proved wrong!

Here is an animation of the heart cycle on echocardiogram - the modality used to assess the heart clinically -

Wonder if the dancing will have the same 'pulse' style? Interesting idea - please report back if you do see it.
