Touching contemporary dance piece

I remember watching this on So You Think You Can Dance and I cried. This was a very touching and inspiring dance piece choreographed by Travis Wall for his mother who struggled through an illness.

The sentiment is so well represented here, especially with the beautiful Coldplay’s lyrics of wanting to “fix” his ailing parent.

I remember crying so much through this when I saw it on TV. It stuck with me and I recalled it again, now at this moment with my father’s passing last weekend. What touched me the most was towards the ending of the dance, when he was guiding his “mother” with his own feet.

A truly amazing dance piece.

I’m sharing this here now, hoping you will feel as touched as I am.
