Anadel Lynton: Soft Light

Soft Light

The poem has images of light and shadows of human life and nature. Its theme is empathy among humans despite their differences. It evokes the intergenerational relations of the sane and not so much. An older woman dances, a singer, and a boy. We listen. A conversation between movements, the playing child, and sung words.


Anadel Lynton was born in the U.S. into a Quaker pacifist family. She grew up in times of war and segregation, yearning for change and expression, and immigrated to Mexico where she found like-minded souls. She is co-founder of the Ballet Independiente and the National Dance Research Center where she continues to work with Dancing in Community projects.
