Graeme Murphy's exquisite work The Protecting Veil is performed to the haunting music of celebrated English composer John Tavener. The poetic aesthetic is flawlessly matched by the work of award-winning Sydney-based lighting designer John Rayment.
The dance movements, predominantly from upstage to downstage, are cut by a lone dancer who enters consistently from the opposite-prompt side of stage in a series of incomplete crossovers, "a soul swimming at cross currents in a sea of inexplicable emotions".
