Back in the theater

Unread post by smulnik »

Hi All!

It was nice to be back in the theater yesterday, albeit with masks and a "virtual" audience. :D

I was running one of the video cameras for the broadcast, but I managed to get a couple of photos during the rehearsal, and a few more during the actual performance. The dancers wore their masks for the rehearsals but not for the performance.

Stay well and healthy!

Yeah ... Masked dancers! This is certainly something extraordinary. How do they manage to breathe like that, and even dance? :shock: :shock:
When will it all end with the virus ... :cry:


The pictures are certainly interesting.

Sig,
I agree with Valery. They are interesting shots with the masks on the subjects.
Once I get past the mask, I see beautifully captured poses.

Yes, breathing through masks makes the dancing a little harder. For those of us who have experience dancing in roles that require wearing things like Mouse King and Nutcracker heads, it's business as usual. :) But now it seems the other dancers have acquired some empathy for us, having to deal with the breathing restrictions first hand. :shock:

Hi, Sig ! :D

Very good sets that also will identify itself as 'a certain era's' photos in years to come. Masks certainly made signature presences in all of our activities with good reason.

I love the pastel colour palette of the costumes against the dark background. What's the name of the performance they are dancing to, if I may ask? :)

Good to see that you have a new responsibility as a broadcaster during the pandemic. We need to keep our brain's neurons in stark condition and these virtual performances are keeping us as close to 'normal' as possible. Good job! :D

Thanks for sharing,
Yildiz

Thanks Sury!

Hi Yildiz! :D

Thinking that masks in our photos will mark an era might seem to be an exaggeration at the moment, but it's so true. For the purpose of recording history, I think that we should all take lots of photos of people in their everyday lives wearing masks.

Thank you, Sig and Saint Louis Ballet ! :D :D

How generous of all of you! "This indeed is Who You Are." I reserved my 'seat' and will love watching the performance. Looking forward to it very much.

Thank you for sharing,

Thanks everyone!

I hope you enjoy the performance Yildiz (and anyone else who watches). Thank you for you support! You (and anyone else) are allowed to share the link that you receive in your email with whomever you want. If it’s okay, I’ll probably post the link (ticket) that I receive in my email. However, encouraging everyone to get an individual link/ticket through the Saint Louis Ballet website helps the Saint Louis Ballet to determine how much interest there is in the on-line performance medium during this time of isolation.

Here’s a link to the St. Louis Ballet’s Facebook post that has more information (for any “Facebookers” out there).

P.S. “Zyg” is an old (Polish) stage-name of mine, from my early days of East European folk dancing. 8)

Thank you, Sig. I know I will. :D

I was able subscribe to Saint Louis Ballet's You Tube channel and watched a couple of recent behind-the-scenes video uploads from former dancers. Looking forward to the streamed performance. Much love and appreciation for everyone involved! :D
