O ballet e seus rituais...

Preparar as sapatilhas de ponta é um deles. As vezes eu penso “porque isso não vem pronto?”, confesso tb que colocava minha mãe para fazer o ritual para mim, mas hoje, se eu puder indicar ou dar algum tipo de conselho, escutem a tia Dry e preparem suas próprias sapatilhas 🌸

Isso vai te aproximar delas. Vai fazer com que você aumente a sua conexão com elas, no melhor estilo “Quem ama cuida” ♥️Eu não sei fazer direito, costuro mal, mas o processo me deixa mais perto delas, um aprendizado, sem dúvidas.O ballet está nas pequenas coisas também. Ele não está apenas nas aulas, ensaios e apresentações ele está nos seus gestos e atitudes. Preparar a ponta, fazer seu coque, se aquecer...Estilo de vida: bailarina 🎀Você prepara suas sapatilhas?

O Ballet Online e o adágio

Segunda-feira, 13 de abril de 2021, aula de ballet, on-line, hora do adagio. Eu fechei minha câmera. Não seria a primeira vez que eu faria o adágio de câmera fechada. Motivo? Dignidade rsrsrsrs eu me sinto muito mal, pq me sinto muito torta.

.Respirei fundo.Vi que todas as câmeras estariam abertas, menos a minha.Tomei coragem e abri minha câmera.Fiz meus pequenos developpés de câmera aberta. O rond não cabe aqui. O attitude não quero nem ver haha mas abri em respeito a mim, ao professor, aos meus colegas e ao ballet..Não fiquei confortável não. Parecia que não acaba nunca e nem era tão grande como costumam ser os adágios.Parece uma bobagem, mas pra mim não é 😅 quis dividir isso com vocês
Encontrei uma sapatilha de ponta na feira de antiguidades

Encontrei essa sapatilha de ponta numa feira de antiguidades em São Paulo. Está escrito “Mappin”, que eh o nome de uma loja de departamentos que ficava em frente ao @theatromunicipal de São Paulo antigamente.

Não encontrei ninguém para nós falar  porque era do Mappin 😅🤷🏻‍♀️ Mas achei uma pessoa que usou uma igual:"Que relíquia!! Cursei me formei na Escola de Bailados época Mappin, usei sapatilhas de pelica compradas nas lojas: "Ballet do Centro" da mãe da Sra. Marika Gidali. Guarde com respeito e carinho!👏👏❤️" @rosairiscorraEla é bem diferente de uma ponta atual. A textura, a forma, as fitas que são cadarços rs não tenho coragem de “abrir” e desmontar para ver como é por dentro.Infelizmente não cabe no meu pé, apesar de estar escrito 38 e eu calçar 36 (não é de hoje que estes tamanhos são malucos 😅)No vídeo eu mostro melhor 😉

The Dante Project review – Wayne McGregor moves heaven, earth and hell

Royal Opera House, LondonThe Divine Comedy is brilliantly reimagined by McGregor with music by Thomas Adès, sets by Tacita Dean and a poetic send-off for Edward Watson

For his new ballet, Wayne McGregor has enlisted some big hitters. Dante Alighieri for one, Italy’s greatest poet, author of The Divine Comedy, which McGregor reimagines here, but living artists, too: composer Thomas Adès, writing his first score for dance, and artist Tacita Dean, creating her first designs for the stage. It’s also the final principal role to be danced by Edward Watson, as Dante, after an extraordinary career.

Dean’s first backdrop, her image of a freezing hell, is a vast, chalk-drawn upturned mountain, an incredible piece of draughtsmanship. But it is Adès’s score (which the composer conducts) that really sets the tone. Full of riches, it shimmers, growls and rumbles, glints and slides. In Inferno he’s definitely in the devil-has-the-best-tunes camp, sometimes soaring into Romanticism, sometimes rollicking like a night at the circus. It’s so far from the kind of music McGregor usually choreographs and it forces new invention, making dance to relish, more classical than usual in places, but also more characterful, even comical. There’s Joseph Sissens and Paul Kay doing a near vaudeville act as Soothsayers; and Mayara Magri and Melissa Hamilton, grabbing, pushing and headbutting as the Wrathful, all still within the realms of the choreographic language.

Upping the Dante: Wayne McGregor and Tacita Dean’s Divine Comedy dance

The choreographer and artist discuss creating The Dante Project for the Royal Ballet – and their own visions of heaven and hell

When Wayne McGregor’s reimagining of epic poem The Divine Comedy opens at the Royal Opera House on Thursday, it will be seven years since he sent the first email to composer Thomas Adès proposing a collaboration. But however long a ballet is in the planning, the crafting of the choreography always comes down to the wire, crammed into the final weeks.

“For me that’s perilous but I just have to go with the flow,” says artist Tacita Dean, who has designed the production. “I think the adrenaline is important for the dancers,” she says, “the fact that it’s very fresh and unlearned.”

Colin Jones obituary
Royal Ballet dancer who became a celebrated photojournalist of social history in Britain and beyond

One line that always produced a laugh from audiences watching the film Billy Elliot was: “What’s best, to be a ballet dancer or to be a miner?” The photographer Colin Jones, who has died aged 85 from Covid-19, would not have thought this such a funny question. He had worked in one of those worlds as a dancer touring with the Royal Ballet and had documented the other with superb photographs, published in the Observer and the Independent magazines and in a book entitled Grafters (2002). He also did important work for the Sunday Times, in particular The Black House project in the 1970s, leading one critic there to describe him as the George Orwell of British photojournalism.

Colin became fascinated by the working lives of miners on his first assignment for the Observer after leaving the Royal Ballet in 1962. He was sent to cover some early pit closures in the north-east and later told an interviewer: “It may sound strange, but I found so many similarities between the lives of miners and ballet dancers. There was the same dependence on strength, fitness and endurance, the same comradeship of a tight-knit community doing a job. And when they finish work, they’re both physically exhausted and drenched in sweat – though miners are covered in coal dust and their work is full of dangers.”

Royal Ballet Beauty Mixed Programme review – in the theatre, I would have been sobbing

Available onlineMarianela Nuñez’s irresistible Aurora, a Wayne McGregor pas de deux and one soloist’s swansong are highlights of the Royal’s 90th anniversary show

As dance shakes out its post-lockdown limbs, one thing is clear: the online sharing of performance is here to stay. It gives companies an opportunity to reach a much wider public than could cram into the theatre on any given night – and offers those who can’t see something live an opportunity to be part of the experience in a different way.

When I was forced to miss the Royal Ballet’s recent Beauty Mixed Programme at the Royal Opera House, it felt like a real boon to be able to catch up digitally with a programme that celebrates the company’s 90th anniversary with a bill of variable quality and interest, but absolute commitment to its founder Ninette de Valois’s mantra of “adventurous traditionalism”.

‘You’re never comfortable as a dancer’: brilliant ballerina Beatriz Stix-Brunell’s next step

The Royal Ballet star, who is swapping the Covent Garden stage for Stanford University, talks about what she will and won’t miss most about dancing

You hear of dancers’ careers being ended by injury, or of them retiring with a heavy heart in their 30s or 40s. But it’s almost unheard of for a ballet dancer to walk away from the stage when they’re still on the up. That’s what Beatriz Stix-Brunell is doing. After 11 years at the Royal Ballet, the 28-year-old American is taking up a place at Stanford University in California. She has impressed in leading roles from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland to Jacqueline du Pré in The Cellist (for which she was nominated for a National Dance award), and might have been promoted to principal. So why leave now?

“I always knew I wanted to go back to school at some point,” she says. “Ballet is so intense, you have to have tunnel vision and it does become a bubble. You give so much of yourself and you’re fine making those sacrifices because you love it so much, but there are so many parts of me that I haven’t discovered yet. It feels like a good time to step into this new chapter.”

Ah, Strictly theme weeks: synonymous with high drama, rampant scoring inflation, and a heady mix of glamour and the dredges of a three-year-old’s dressing-up box.
