I’m sure you’d love to see photos… so here you go!
The opening preview evening
Outside: cold, dark, very foggy Waikato evening. Inside: champagne, magic, mystery, and lots of swirly skirts!
Glimpses of stories from three dancers
Paige is fifteen and wants to be a professional ballerina. She dreams of twirling, skirts flying and pointe shoes whispering and dancing a story of love, joy, heartbreak, revenge, and an ultimate act of forgiveness, in the hauntingly romantic ballet, Giselle. You can see all about our Giselle series here.
Elena is a belly dancer, inspired to dance by one of the greatest love stories you’ve probably never heard of: when a Ruthenian slave girl captured the heart of a sultan. He named her Hürrem, ‘the cheerful one’, and wrote poems to her eyes. You can see where we’re up to in her story here.
And me, who reads far too many fantasy novels now steps into my own wondrous adventures. You can see my adventure with the mermaids here.
And I’m getting great feedback from visitors!
It’s one thing to read about these artworks online, but a lot of people were telling me that seeing the artworks in person with their rich colours and detailed texture is quite a different experience (yay!)
If you’re in Hamilton before the 26th of June, pop into ArtsPost and have a look. Oh, and leave me a comment in my guest book – I’d love to hear from you!
