I’ve been to many a live drawing sessions before, but never one with a live snake! A bit ironic, I suppose, considering it was Easter weekend. But oh, what fun!
I had the opportunity yesterday to sit in on a rehearsal observing and drawing two phenomenal dancers getting ready for their upcoming performance, what a treat!
It was quite a mental workout trying to keep up with their movement. Here are some highlights from the session.
After observing the two dancers for a couple of hours I started doing some quick storyboards. These are attempts to interpret the dancers’ vocabulary that I observed: their expression, the dynamic between the dancers, their pacing and change of pace, and their sensitivity.
If you are in the Greater Vancouver area, Dario and Carissa will be performing at the Scotiabank Dance Centre at 677 Davie Street on Wednesday at 6pm. It’s free, and I’ve had a sneak peak and can tell you it’s fantastic, so make sure you go check them out for yourself!
