Time is the echo of an axe within a wood (2004), to the music of Bèla Bartók, uses light as the unifying concept. Dancers enter and exit through a shimmering, beaded curtain designed by painter, David Salle that surrounds the stage. This heightens the feeling of ambiguity between dream and reality. Time is the echo is concerned with time, not clock time but the way time affects us in dream, memory and daydream. The title is from a poem by Philip Larkin.

The duet by Megumi Eda and William Isaac is from the third movement.
