Help Ballet in Small Spaces


hello All
Seeking your support – could you be a Ballet in Small Spaces angel?  Read on…

Two Old Instruments is a collaboration between dancer Susie Crow of Ballet In Small Spaces and viola da gamba player Jonathan Rees (of prize winning Duo Domenico).  It celebrates the salon pieces of 18th century virtuoso Carl Friedrich Abel.  Some comments on last year’s work in progress:
“Music and dance in easy harmony…”
“Exquisite detail…”
“Elements of melancholy, drama, half playful, half serious…”

Two Old Instruments is designed to be performed in intimate settings: concert or village halls, churches, libraries, museums, historic houses.  We already have three bookings in April 2014 and are discussing additional dates with other venues.

It has just two performers and neither scenery nor stage lighting is essential for performance. However, a visual highlight will be costumes by talented Oxford based stage designer Ellen Nabarro, evocative of both past and present.  As ever, Ballet In Small Spaces is also seeking to provide opportunities for young artists in different media: photographer Dulcy Lott will be creating still images and video artist Chris Atkins a film of the performance.

Could you be an angel?  Ballet in Small Spaces is looking for donors to enable us to complete the project.  Coincidentally, 2014 sees the 10th anniversary of Ballet in Small Spaces which had its first performance in February 2004.  The simplest way to support Two Old Instruments is to donate £10 – or more if you wish! – by 10th February 2014 (see details below).

All our angels will be acknowledged by name on Ballet In Small Spaces’s website (unless you wish to remain anonymous) and when you come to see the show there will be a complimentary drink of your choice to celebrate our anniversary.

Thank you!
Susie
