A duet between solo dancer and live pianist performing the second movement of Beethoven’s 7th piano sonata (Op.10/3)

An exploration of love, fate and death, the title of the piece refers to Hindu mythology, in which the god of love (Kama) carries a bow with five arrows in his quiver. As he shoots his arrows one by one, the lover passes through the joys and torments of each of the five stages of desire and passion. The fifth arrow brings climax and release – being death itself.
