Photo Pair ~ Passage For Two

Today I paired my sketch Reach with a photo from Passage for Two. To get the full effect of today’s photo pair make sure to watch the video of the fourth Dance movement from NY Export: Opus Jazz featuring the choreography of Jerome Robbins, music by Robert Prince and New York City Ballet soloists Rachel Rutherford and Craig Hall.  Watch “Passage For Two”.

I thought I would also share the beginnings of another sketch Pas de Deux in keeping with the theme of course. Illustrator and I are still arguing with one another. I am sure eventually we will learn to cooperate better. But even unfinished there is something I like about them. I suspect it is the expression of the dance pose itself. Even frozen in space dancers bodies seems to be able to communicate a mirade of emotions. I never seem to tire of their narration.

For this weekend’s post I chose one of my own Photo Pairs, Bicycle Sunday. Hope you have a fabulous long weekend! I know I am looking forward to an extra day off.

Video to jump start the weekend: 

Janie Taylor for Chloé

The Prima Ballerina Models the Fashion House’s Ethereal Collection

New York City Ballet principal Janie Taylor road tests Chloé’s dance-inspired spring/summer 2011 collection with choreographer and corps de ballet member Justin Peck in today’s short by director Bon Duke. Set to Philip Glass’s “String Quartet No. 3, ‘Mishima’: IV. 1962: Body Building,” the impassioned routine was conceived by Peck in a bid to capture the multidimensional aspects of the performance on camera.~link~ Janie Taylor for Chloe
