When space is silence…

Words, sounds, and space…

Pas de Deux
(Coda)

At the center of the day
                                  I  saw   you
    with your good-looking suit
  waiting for me

I’ve been waiting for you   too

  Today is the moment
when we heal our   wounds
Remove the mirrors from our eyes
                           throw them   away

No more reflections of our own image
    in each others eyes
We’ll see through

We need to hurry
Join our hands with the movement
of a silent kiss

            I do love the way you   dance

Pas de deux

Definition from Britannica Concise Encyclopedia:

Dance for two performers. A characteristic part of classical ballet, it includes an adagio, or slow dance, by the ballerina and her partner; solo variations by the male dancer and then the ballerina; and a coda, or conclusion, with both partners dancing together to display their virtuosity. Celebrated pas de deux occur in Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake, and Giselle.

Definition from Dictionary of Dance:
A dance for two, a duet. In classical ballet there are also pas de trois, pas de quatre, and pas de six, for three, four, and six dancers respectively. The classical pas de deux follows a traditional pattern: an entrée and adagio for the ballerina and her cavalier, a variation for the male dancer, a variation for the female dancer, and a final coda which reunites the partners. A classical pas de trois is usually for one male and two female dancers and follows the traditional pattern of the pas de deux.
