Pictures from an Exhibition

Monday, April 26th, 2010

On Friday choreographer Frauke Requardt and director Daniel Kramer’s dance-theatre portrait of composer Mussorgsky was performed at Sadler’s Wells. The nightmare of a man’s chaotic troubled life increasingly fueled by vodka, unfolds through memories that take the audience on a harrowing journey back to his childhood and his ultimate self destruction follows.

Over the last few years I have drawn some of the dancers when they danced with the Cholmondeleys and Featherstonehaughs and they were as fabulous in this production as they were then. The choreography is beautiful and strong and I admit to willing the acting to hurry so I could see and draw more movement.

Sally’s drawings on show in Marylebone

Seven of my framed drawings are on show at the West End hairdressing salon, Billi Currie at 47 Chiltern Street, London W1U 6LX. Billi is a fantastic stylist, he’s been cutting my hair for the last year, often kindly fitting me in before rushing off to work on a photo shoot. Marcelo does beautiful colour work. The salon has a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere, this is the second time the salon have shown my work.
