Hello Blog Lovers!!
As Gavin said in her latest blog we haven't fallen off the face of the Earth... But we have been pretty dead to the world by the end of the day... Whether we're rehearsing Christopher's Rite of Spring, Val's Lambarena or Peter Martin's Ash, our brains are toast by the time we all get home!! Not only are they all exceptionally difficult to dance, but they are three ballets that are VERY difficult to count!!
One thing this company is blessed with is a sense of unity and support... In Lambarena the music is intoxicating as it moves from African instrumentals into African song in which the beautiful African voices chant Mubasa (I'm sure I've butchered the spelling of the word)... Mubasa means "together" and that is exactly the feeling we all have while dancing this ballet... When it all comes together it is an amazing feeling of accomplishment and there's such a massive amount of love and support amongst the dancers... Mostly because we all have a common knowledge of how difficult it is...
I can't wait to perform this program and share these three amazing ballets with everyone in the audience... I am sure they will make everyone leap out of their seats and want to see more!!
I'll keep you posted :)
