Portrait of Evelyne Allard













Evelyne is an aerial artist currently performing in LIMBO at the South Bank in London.  

I was struck by the poetry of Evelyne's performance and wanted to capture the essence of that feeling in these photographs.

LIMBO

Danik Abishev

LIMBO is a wondrous blend of music, dance, circus, sideshow, magic, acrobatics and spectacle.  I'm fortunate enough to have seen it twice now and each time has been a life affirming experience.

Here are my photos of the cast warming up before the show.

An Evolution of Love


I've been working with performance artist Bridgett Ane Lawrence on the imagery for her new production An Evolution of Love.




It's a dance play written, choreographed and performed by Bridgett Ane for the Brighton Fringe Festival, May 17-19 at the Marlborough Theatre.  As well as these stills, I've created films which will form the back-drop to part of the performance.


She's a fearless, talented performer and also an Asana Yoga Champion.


I wish her every success!

Poison Arrows



Poison Arrows
from Gaynor Perry on Vimeo.


It's not impossible or unsurmountable, just say it out loud
Could be that you think it doesn't matter if you keep your feelings locked away
Darling, poison arrows will fade to dust
Sometimes it's hard to trust


First we crawl, then we walk, then we run and then we fly
Embracing all the new beginnings I'm calling to me every day
The grass is long in the meadow, I trace the contours where we lay
Darling, say those arrows fade to dust - only time will tell for us



Something to say coloured by the night
Just like a dance there's letting go and holding on
Spirited away like fallen leaves
Melt into the ground, we're just resting - we're resting

And I'll see you for you, you'll see me for me - what arrows?



Tiny shoots are breaking through, reaching up into the blue
I'll see you for you, you'll see me for me



I'll see you for you, you'll see me for me
