Who needs the wires and pulleys? Festival Ballet Providence company dancers were flying around during the Peter Pan run-through yesterday. Especially when frozen in a still frame, their work looks so effortless. Yet, they were dancing, moving, jumping, sweating for about 4 hours, practically nonstop. The first photo I took that day has a timestamp of 1:52 PM and the last one, 5:41 PM. Think about it!
I decided to pick only the frames that contained at least one dancer in the air (I think they call some of them jeté.) After all, Peter Pan, Tinkerbell, and the kids who follow them to Neverland all fly. I am certain this will be even more exciting, much more exciting on stage, in costume (see the preview thumbnails I photographed during the photo session for the posters,) with gear that will make some of them fly. Mark your calendars for May 16-18, 2014 for Jorden Morris’ Peter Pan, presented by Festival Ballet Providence. This may be a treat for the young, and treatment for the old(er)!
