Tandy Beal is a dancer, choreographer, actress, comic and dreamer. Her work featured in this unit is an excerpt from HereAfterHere, a self-guided tour of eternity, with music composed by Jon Scoville. It is a celebration of life and all of its joyful energy, as well as an invitation to savor every moment. Her works range widely from the lyric and poetic to the theatrical and whimsical, and these qualities are embedded in the lessons. While dance is the central medium for her performance art, theatre and music are essential elements. The lessons focus on body shapes and actions, the concepts of change, entrances and exits, and counterbalanced illusions. The major universal theme throughout is Transformation.
