Anna Clyne: DANCE, I: When you're broken open

Cellist, Inbal Segev, leads this heart-breaking rendition of the first movement of Anna Clyne's 'Dance'.

'Dance' by Rumi
Dance, when you're broken open.
Dance, if you've torn the bandage off.
Dance in the middle of the fighting.
Dance in your blood.
Dance when you're perfectly free.

Anna Clyne: DANCE, II. if you've torn the bandage off
