"Pure magic ..... together they are magnificent" - The Listener
In the dance of life Sylvia has two left feet, but Karpovsky has arrived to tutor her in hope and grace. Years ago, Sylvia travelled the world and its greatest ballet theatres; now she lives alone in a house filled with photographs of her favourite dancers and boxes of her daughter’s unwanted possessions. Sylvia knows all the dances and has all the moves in her head, but is afraid to step out. Then the great dancer Alexander Karpovsky – she has seen him dance 127 times – turns up mysteriously in her lonely room and breaks through her brittle cocoon...
