Let the Performance Begin!

Irish Art - Let the Performance Begin - dancing girls, lady in red, stage performance, the ballet

The audience wait in hushed  anticipation.  The theatre retreats into darkness.  The stage lights herald the arrival of the dancers …

Let the performance begin !

 

Lately I have immersed myself in the wonderful world of dance and all that  it  entails.

Got to Dance, dance competition and reality show on TV with Ashley BanjoKimberly Wyatt, and Adam Garcia serving as judges.  It is a display of  unbridled talent waiting to burst forth in celebrating life itself!

Black Swan the American psychological thriller film directed by Darren Aronofsky and starring Natalie PortmanVincent Cassel, and Mila Kunis.  Its plot revolves around a production of Tchaikovsky‘s Swan Lake ballet.  Natalie Portman brilliantly plays the role  of a ballerina as both the innocent White Swan and the sensual Black Swan.

Finally,  saving the best till last, I  had the absolute pleasure of attending Tchaikovsky’s first ballet,  Swan Lake,   with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra held in the wonderful surroundings of The Grand Canal Theatre, Dublin.    The formation of The Russian State Ballet in 1979 brought stars from the famous Bolshoi, Kirov and Stanislavski ensembles together to bring Soviet ballet to the rest of the world.  Odette/Odile was performed  by Anna Scherbakova whose command of the stage and lightness of foot resembled a butterfly set free in a field of wild flowers, one more sweet  and alluring than the next.

Swan Lake, is considered to be the greatest classical ballet of all time. Its romance and beauty has mesmerised audiences for more than 100 years.  For me, it was a truly captivating experience.

Irish Art - Let the performance begin - Ballet, dancing girls, ladies in red, dancing performance, dancing on stage

With all of this in mind, I thought I would show you the paintings that  I have worked  on which are in keeping with this wonderful world of mystique and charm – the life of a dancer!

Irish Art- Cruagh Wood - dublin mountains

Cruagh Wood, Dublin Mountains

 

High up in the Dublin mountains, pockets of snow littered the landscape as the Spring sunshine and shrill winds competed with one another.  The harsh winter had been left behind and the only evidence remaining was the rush of  Spring water beating a track through the moss coated rocks, deep into the forest.
