Summary
Recreates a dancer's emotions while watching a bullfight. The dance material is intercut and blended with footage from a bullfight ring in Spain. "Sokolow creates her movement out of a distillation of the ritual gestures of the Spanish bullring. She embodies the matador and the bull, the executioner and the sacrifice."
