Softly, as I Leave You

Softly as I Leave You was created by Sol León and Paul Lightfoot in 1994 based on Matt Monro’s song of the same name. The box and pas de deux performed in and around it were the starting point for the piece which explores a journey through the senses. The male dancer represents touch, the female dancer represents the sixth sense and the mystery of a human being. The piece uses space and light and the box to dramatise the restrictions and limitations, the togetherness and separateness found in an intimate relationship.
