Light, in visible and invisible wavelengths, is everywhere in the universe, and yet its particles behave in ways which are anything but “ordinary”. This piece draws inspiration from the mundane yet miraculous qualities of light at a quantum level, as well as from those noblest aspects of the human spirit associated with images of illumination.

Press Reviews
“Damon's delightful nerd ballet On the Mysterious Properties of Light is an unlikely dance about physics set to a series of folk songs.”
THE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER

"Damon brings a fresh, comic sensibility"
THE DANCE JOURNAL

“Flashes of inventive movement and a flair for dramatic staging are evidence that BalletX has rightly chosen Damon as a talent to nurture.”
