The music is uplifting… and yet full of despair. The intertwined melodies of the flute and cello fill the room.
Powerless loved ones surround a dying child and pray—while Life and Death dance together unnoticed, each desperately trying to lead.
When the dance ends with the flute’s rising trill, Death steps back as Life walks to the bedside.
Then, with an unseen power, the lost child wakes from the abyss and reaches for loving arms; hopeful and joyous.
Life and Death then enter the next room and both wonder, how will this dance end—with the flute…or the cello?
