Through interpretative dance, the concept of losing control is going to be presented. I suspect that through symbolism and symmetry, what will be presented will be a flight of fancy in what some people may dream of when their heads rest upon a pillow and soft music is playing in the background.

This love story is presented through a mixture of music and dance with perhaps some animism mixed in. When the tale takes place in the Rockies, just how two people find each other is not just with how two souls connect, but in how Nature perceives them to be perfect for each other. With a title that suggests that a bear may be involved, I wonder just how close this concept will be to Disney’s Brother Bear?
