Gypsy Mixture (2004) is not a narrative piece, yet it has a strong sense of place and character.  There is no story as such, but the choreography and music together conjure up vivid images of a group of people with their own identity, which alters as they travel from place to place.
 

The following films, which break down the piece, and the downloadable resource sheets may prove useful to teachers of dance.
