The dance explores abstract but clear ways to integrate both joy and suffering in various movement phrases, ideas, and relationships based on the beauty in these verses: “When you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy. When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight. Some of you say, "Joy is greater than sorrow," and others say, "Nay, sorrow is the greater.” But I say unto you, they are inseparable.”
