KNT Danceworks Day of Day - A Couple of Postscripts
Standard YouTube Licence
Two postscripts to Vampires, my write up on yesterdays' Day of Dance at the Dancehouse,
The first is that Karen has posted the video of our performance of Daethon and Arundel to YouTube which you can see above. Remember we learned this piece in 90 minutes. For many of us it was the first time we had heard David Hotchkiss's music or learned about his libretto. Daethon was danced by Ruaridh Bisset and the lead vampire by Mark Hindle.
The other postscript is that Harriet Mills, who taught the advanced ballet class yesterday, keeps an excellent blog called A Ballet for Life which I strongly recommend. Harriet is a principal of the Karlsuhe State Ballet. On 17 Nov 2018 her company will premiere a new production of Swan Lake by Christopher Wheeldon which I for one should like to see.
If anyone would like to see it with me get in touch as soon as possible. If there are enough of us we might be able to negotiate group discounts with the theatre, hotel and airlines.
