Day 5 saw the close of the first week of my studio time with the dancers making Missing Pages. Using a short story written for us by John F Wake, together with divine music by Ravel, the work is s series of male/female duets depicting the memoirs of an imaginary character Walter Walters.
I am very much privileged to be working with an amazing team of artists on this piece, with the dancers playing a pivotal role in the combination of the elements – they have been amazingly creative in the studio this week, surpassing all of my expectations (which are pretty demanding)
Today we welcomed another team member, photographer Paul Trask, to our creative session. We were located at Llanhilleth Railway Station in Abertillery, South Wales, for a photo shoot which at times reminded me of Brief Encounter. We shot some really evocative images which will be used throughout the coming season for our Inspired Tour 2013
All in all a great week, I look forward to sharing more with you next week – have a great weekend!
