Diverse Dancers: I

Standard

I am performing (alongside many other local talents) tomorrow at the opening of this Gallery event – writing the poems at the moment… it will be my 2nd gallery opening and I am looking forward to it!

Photogiraffe Live Art

Najma Hush’s, Diverse Dancers is the title given to a  large and ever expanding compilation of photographs, primarily concerned with the multiplicity of varying dance traditions, unique to a variety of different cultures and subcultures.

This collection has been produced with a keen interest in the grace of dancer’s movements and seeks to reveal the eloquence of each pose, jump, spin and lift.  As this project expands and develops, Hush seeks to come closer to interpreting and presenting the exceptional language of bodies that never lie.

Presently, a small and miscellaneous selection from this collection is exhibiting at ORT Cafe, Birmingham, UK (19th Feb-5th Mar 2014).

Look out for the next post on Diverse Dancers, where you can view the photographs from the open exhibition night and get better acquainted with all the amazing performers who will come…

Daily Prompt – Excitement

Daily Prompt: The Excitement Never Ends

by michelle w. on September 8, 2013

Tell us about the last thing you got excited about — butterflies-in-the-stomach, giggling, can’t-wait excited. 

college reunion Last year an old college friend of mine decided to open a FB group and organise a reunion of our performing arts class. It took a year to organise it as 2 friends got married last year and some of us now live all around the world.

By the time the day came 7 of us met for lunch back in our college County. Isabelle (who is expecting her first) only popped in so there are just 6 of us on this photo.

We had not seen each other for about 20 years, all of us have stayed in contact with some people who have joined the group, but none of us have stayed as a whole group – as is life!

I CANNOT REMEMBER A TIME WHEN I HAVE BEEN THIS EXCITED! It was of course nerve wracking but we all got on as if we had not skipped a day of each other’s lives. It was such a great lunch!

When we had got over how old this made us all!

It’s true what they say about friends for life – as a thirty-something, I realise that sometimes you meet people who turn out to be bit part players, this lot – they are main cast and crew!
