Suspended movement is a term used in ballet to describe two opposing forces that are equally strong. It is the moment between flying and falling when the dancer is still in the air, right before gravity acts. I've been looking at Russian ballet costumes from the beginning of the 20th century, fascinated by the memory of a movement that is documented only in a garment, a drawing or a photograph.
