February 26, 2013 - Ballerina in Hawaii



Ballerina Kate Ann Behrendt in Hawaii, being photographed for the ballerina project by Dane Shitagi. In her own words:

Quote:
The contrast of the cement and rock against [my lovely, light dress] concocted a neat vibe. It was my first shoot in a little under a year, and my soul needed it. There is a power in posing for something you are passionate about. I usually try and empty my mind. To come into the work and be moved by the setting is my favorite thing about working with Dane. He enjoys using dancerís natural instincts.

I'm going to do something like that. I will call it "Bigerina."

I'll lay my fat ass across a tree, draped in white silk (me, not the trees) and let the breeze air out my...um, er.... and I'll stand on the levee of the Miami River, against the background of industrialism, draped in white silk (me, not the river) and have the wind ever so slightly ripple through my dress and my hair, then I'll walk by a creek bank, draped in white silk (me, not the creek) and hold my breast as if it felt so free it wants to fly away.

Beautiful...but the ballet poses make her look like she's been shopped into a landscape...especially the last one.

Still...very lovely. I especially like the first one.

If you will be emulating Ms. Behrendt, leave your breast(s) at home.

Gotta be hard to be on pointe in those landscapes. On pointe on the sand????

My fave was the last one.

Ballerinas are so lovely. They go thru agony but they smile, smile, smile (or not, depending on the role).



Trilby  Tuesday Feb 26 04:25 PM

Dana, the first reminds me of a fairy looking over a human kingdom with a kind of sorrow for those whose lives are so-----fixed and cemented; fly paper.



DanaC  Tuesday Feb 26 04:30 PM

Yeah. I can see that.

I see a sci-fi futurescape.

She looks my my best buddy. Well my best buddy is prettier, but that's what she looks like! Cross that lady with Penelope Cruz.

Blech. Ballerinas, I lump in with boiled okra.

A couple years ago we went to a ballet of Peter Pan and through some very fortunate mistake wound up with tickets for the very front row. (It was like that old Natural Light beer commercial where that guy was being led to his seat saying "I must be in the front row" except we really were.) It's a completely different performance when you are sitting right there. What you can't see from the normal seats is that the dancers are sweating like mad and breathing very heavily. But the way they hold their posture, you don't see the chests heaving. I was very impressed.

I still wonder how we got those tickets in the mail when we paid for the cheap seats.



infinite monkey  Thursday Feb 28 08:30 AM

I remember those commercials! Bob Uecker! Only it was Miller Lite. You got Uecker seats!

Hey, while you're out getting all cultury I'm memorizing beer commercials!



glatt  Thursday Feb 28 08:39 AM

I couldn't remember his name, but I knew you would know it.

Good old Bob Uecker. Don't see enough of him these days.



infinite monkey  Thursday Feb 28 08:51 AM

I googled him, can't find the commercial but I ran into a Carson Lecture:

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln's Johnny Carson School of Theatre and Film presents the 2011 Carson Lecture featuring former major league baseball player, sportscaster, comedian and actor Bob Uecker. The event features the announcement of an additional $1 million gift for scholarships from the John W. Carson Foundation and a special performance of the Cornhusker Marching Band
Uecker is a funny guy. I'll have to watch that video sometime when I have an hour and a half.
