Figure a Sea, a dance for the Cullberg Ballet plus 6 guest dancers, is a landscape in which movement and sound combine to create a grand and emotional silence within the theater. How is it possible to sustain that silence in the hearts and minds of the performers and audiences alike? The choreographer Deborah Hay creates this new work, with sound and music by composer/musician Laurie Anderson. For details, http://www.cullbergbaletten.se/en
