This dance seemed to be very precise. My evaluation says that it was a very sad but yet entertaining dance. The Greek story about how Prometheus stole the fire from Zeus was in there because of the fire, but what I realized was that it seemed to be more of a love story than anything else. The lifts and in how they were executed was very well. The story seemed to be very well thought of, The dancers all was very good.
They wore unitards so every inch of a dancer’s line is celebrated. Although some had random jewels on it that I thought did not fit the piece, the unitards definitely enhanced the ideas and themes of the dance. She also had dresses for girls and pants and shirts for guys in some pieces. In Nancy’s solo J, she was wearing a costume that had pants with very high slits, which showed off the lines of her legs. I find it interesting how O’Donnell used the unitards to detach a dancer of his or her gender to make all the dancers interchangeable.
It is attractive to me. Perhaps, when I was child, I want to learn ballet, so this work appealed to me. And I liked Gogh’s works. The meantime, when I saw Gogh’s works, I thought that Gogh is genius, how to thought his own strong brush printing, color, shape. However, I realized that almost Gogh’s works showed his metal condition.
The next movement I noticed was two dancers doing a kind of “stomping” on the stage. This conveyed a very tribal message to me. Finally, I noticed in movement in which the performer twirled in place on stage. This gave me a sense of relaxation. The sound score starts out very tribal but then transforms into a slightly more sophisticated musical composition.
I was really impressed by the way he first starts of when he has an idea for a new creation and the outcome when his helpers are done with them. Chihuly’s chandeliers are very impressive. They range from symmetrical to random. Mostly on all of his chandeliers, he likes to add color strings in the inside and outside to give each piece more character. He adds swirls,
Dorothy Allison skillfully constructed stories made her point about art clear. Art has a kind of mysterious magic that make people fall into an imagination, leading people to have different mood. In her story, she seems making the art become more convincingness that people think art is everywhere; more about the personal opinion or perspective; become more motional to people. Art should be surprise, astonish and bring magic to everyone’s
D-Man in the Waters The man in the waters was a great dance through strength, stamina, and serious technical training is some of the key elements of what allows you to get through one of Bill T. Joneses dances. I really enjoyed the moments where the company did everything in unison as well as spontaneously. I’m not really a fan of the music he chose it’s kind of distracting to the choreography loud and obnoxious. I would have chosen something a little more subtle and abstract. Bill T. Jones used blue and a lot of water colors to give us the feel of the water and how it moves very rapidly in many directions.
Neutral colors with a pop of empowerment, the styles of clothing and art deco furnishings gave God of Carnage the flare needed to top off the captivation. It was humorous and I would go see it again in a heartbeat. The moment I entered the area where the play was to take place, I immediately
Drawing Fauve style was a new experience, and it allowed me to let go and put all my emotions into the painting, rather than make everything perfect. There were many steps in our big project, and the first step on painting our fauve portrait was to get the proportions right (making sure our eyes were big enough and spaced out enough, looking where our hair starts, how thick our neck should be, how long our nose should be). So we started to do some realistic drawing and sketching to improve our skills. We first sketched with a lead pencil and drew a rough portrait of a person with perfect proportions. Then, we drew another one, but this time it was a self-portrait and we used a mirror to aid us in drawing ourselves.
