As part of the Balance series, Epaulement is a rotation of the shoulders and head (relative to the hips) to add beauty or expressiveness to a pose, step, or movement in Ballet terms. Visually, she disconnect from gravity in leaning forward against the bulk of her weight. She leans into mid-air, caught in a moment in time, in the midst of a leap of faith. As a snapshot of life, we can all see ourselves, taking that leap, leaning into a new direction. We facilitate change by putting our full weight behind it. In that moment it appears ungrounded, yet we prevail. Anneke creates this piece in celebration of those moments that we feel well over our balance, but we still do not tumble over. Edition of 11.
