Sad Waltz and the Dancer Who Couldn't Dance | Installation View
 
A male marionette wearing a tuxedo appears to play 'The Sad Waltz' composed by Edward Mirzoyan on a tiny model of a grand piano. His fingers seem to search out the notes as the music changes. On the desk surface beside him is another marionette attempting to dance to the music. Her movements are both fantastical and distressed as she fluctuates between crumpling on the floor and soaring through the air, her long black hair enveloping her. All the while, the pianist stoically plays on.
