In this multisensory work, choreographer Pavel Zustiak and his Palissimo Company ask, Where do we find beauty today, and does it need our defense? Zustiak creates an immersive visual experience for Custodians of Beauty, combining movement with imagery, light, and sound in response to a 2009 speech by Pope Benedict XVI, reminding artists of their responsibilities as custodians of beauty in the world. Through formal abstraction and restrained, minimalist gesture, Zustiak explores the human body as sculpture, emotional trigger, and political symbol.
