Lustra evokes desire in all of its modern complexities. The work physicalizes human feelings and conflicts surrounding love, jealousy, longing and isolation. Intense movement and interaction amongst the dancers provides an environment for these emotions to heighten and allows desire to gain control.  Video projections supply additional layers of dynamics as it shows the dancers in different locations, in different attitudes.
