Music, Colour, Motion, And Dance

Back to Doors Open. At the end of last month I mentioned that I'd arrived in this space at the NAC shortly before a performance was due to start. Two dancers did a mesmerizing act for the crowd. A look at the day's schedule identifies these two as Maude Parent and Timothe Vincent, two members of a group called Les 7 doigts de la main. I took a lot of photographs, enough so that if we have a theme day revolving around motion next year I already have the shots for it. And I'll be using one spare shot for the Orange theme day later in the year. Check out my video of part of the performance here.

  2. First of all, let me say that I find your new banner very refreshing...it's been 96/97 degrees here recently... And these dance photos! I admire their body positions, some of which would lay me up for weeks!
