Cardiac Dance, The Spirals of Life
The University of
Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music
The Cardiac Dance | The Spirals of Life from Richard Cawood on Vimeo.
Cardiac Dance - The Spirals of Life is
an excursion into the rarely explored realm where science and
art meet - for the educational purpose of understanding the
heart in health and disease.
This unique program combines the
exploration of the revolutionary surgical technique which
restores normal form and function to the heart.
The dance demonstrates the joy of
harmonic movement, the tragedy of heart attack, and the
salvation and rebirth by rebuilding the heart though surgery.
Originally presented as a live
performance in May of 2007 by the Dance Department of the
University of Cincinnati's College Conservatory of Music, The
Cardiac Dance - the Spirals of Life was re-staged specifically
for the camera and shot with state-of-the-art HD equipment in
order to achieve a broader learning exposure in sharing this
unique scientific and artistic experience.
