Working from a Model

November 1, Penelope Models with her “Flight” theme

Posted on: November 4th, 2016 by

Penny modeled while dancing with her new choreography on flight that she created for an opera call Test Pilot Opera. The opera is based on the Wright Brothers and their sister.  Penny posed in still positions and she modeled using a dance routine about flight.  She just kept repeating the routine with stop and start action so that we could capture this motion.  This was wonderful to watch, but this will take me a while to incorporate into my work.img_0446
