Choreographer: Behind the scenes with Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet

I love to get a behind-the-scenes look of dancers and choreographers. You get into the heart, creativity, and genius that goes into creating a work of art. In this video we see Belgian choreographer, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, working on"Orbo Novo" for Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet. He explains his style of "undulation" and how the movement never stops to keep the energy flowing. "Orbo Novo" premiered in July 2009 for the Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival. Polish composer Szymon Brzóska created the score for strings and piano.
