With a cast of five striking dancers, Sally Silvers let her imagination loose, inspired by the iconic imagery and power of Alfred Hitchcock. Silvers combined dramatic dance imagery with sound and lighting to evoke not only the fear and tension of Hitchcock’s films, but also to echo Hitchcock’s landscape of alienation, and his mastery in the realm of the unexpected.
