The Show is Over

The Show is Over 

Exhausted, relieved, energetic or worn out. Nobody usually gets to see how dancers leave the stage after a performance. Backstage, they fall into a kind of vacuum, the empty space that follows after the almost superhuman effort. The mind is still on stage and the adrenaline still rushes through the body. The dancer has not yet switched to the sober reality. Not only the dance, but also the dancer has been danced.
