When rust eats the sturdy iron, Time makes manifest of itself. This steel bridge is replaced by a new and plain-looking one (not in picture) made largely of concrete. But its nostalgic appearance makes a quaint picture of a town.

In choreographer Erl Sorilla’s “Requiem to a Cygnet”,  three male dancers  are turned into cygnets mourning a lost companion. The tutus and mourning veils suggested homosexuality. The dance’s description succinctly explained such a melancholia: “The known symmetry of four swans, paralleled to Swan Lake‘s Cygnets, diminished to three suggests a death of a part of their identity. This loss initiates a loss of the true self.”
