Silly me! I should have known better than to click on that 'Events' newsletter that arrived in my inbox.
What caught my attention was this image....
Isn't it fabulous? I don't even like green or yellow that much, but this image just drew me in. Maybe it was the costuming - I am a sucker for anything to do with costuming of any sort, historical, theatrical, dance, stage & shows, cultural - you name it, if it involves fibre, fabrics & colour I love it.
Of course this just had to be the picture for the latest Cirque du Soleil show to visit New Zealand "Dralion", described as
"the fusion of ancient Chinese circus tradition and the avant-garde approach of Cirque du Soleil. The shows name is drawn from its two main symbols: the dragon, representing the East, and the lion, representing the West. Dralion derives much of its inspiration from Eastern philosophy with its perpetual quest for harmony between humankind and nature."
I'd love to go, it's been years since I went to any type of show, but alas the Cirque du Soliel is only on in Auckland.
Never mind - that image has been enough to make me want to try the colours, somehow in a bead.
