Created for Philadelphia Ballet 2022.

«Castillo’s piece brings the kinetic feeling of Salvador Dali’s painting, “The Persistence of Memory,” to life on the stage; the complex production elements work together to create a mysterious world where time is suspended and memories float by like wispy clouds.»
