The CARDIAC DANCE is based on the twisting, pulsing rhythms of the human heart in motion. Through the work of two cardiologists — Drs. Francisco Torrent-Guasp and Gerald Buckberg — a new approach to dealing with congestive heart failure has been developed. What you will see on stage is their attempt to show this revolutionary concept through dance, music and multimedia.
