As helmed by Ross MacGibbon, the performance release Cursive II witnesses an act by the acclaimed Cloud Gate Dancers. Its members are performers uniquely trained in three distinct disciplines - Chi-Kung, martial arts and meditation - with the ability to segue very smoothly between gentle, seductive movements and overwhelming, powerful ones. In this particular release, they dance to the music of avant-garde composer John Cage; onscreen, MacGibbon also adds poetic and lyrical images of "ice crackles} from Sung porcelain to accompany and accentuate the music and dancing.
