Aerial Ballet

May 29, 2010

so obviously Harry Nilsson’s grandparents were circus performers who specialized in Aerial Ballet. Thus, the album title. But still…there may not be a more beautiful activity in theory than Aerial Ballet. It reminds me of my days at NYU in the Experimental Theatre Wing, when my voice teacher Cecil recounted her early memories of running away to join the circus, while drilling into us the Linklater technique.

side note…Cecil (the voice teacher) appeared in the movie Speed. That’s what you get for professors when you sign up for a BFA
