As we all await the Halloween spectacular on the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing, perhaps followers of this blog would like to watch a video which tells a Victorian-style story set in the modern age through the use of movement and classical ballet.
Just click the link above!
The film, made in 2006, was inspired by Richard Schumann’s hauntingly beautiful Kinderscenen, in English, Scenes from Childhood . It is for the family, like Wilde’s Canterville Ghost. (See below)
A lot of people in the UK will soon eagerly tune in to Halloween week on the BBC TV show Strictly Come Dancing.
This is always great fun and surely a season favourite!
After the show I personally won’t “Keep Dancing!” as advised by the ultra-glam presenters Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman!
Personally blessed with two left feet I stick to poetry or else it’s the CD Basic Yoga for Dummies with Sara Ivanhoe! (Recommended).
So for my Thursday post here’s my own poem with a Victorian feel on video inspired by Lake Windermere, the heart of Arthur Ransome country which is also related to Oscar Wilde with his celebrated play Lady Windermere’s Fan.
Believe it or not after the sun goes down and the tourists disappear Lake Windermere can be quite spooky.
Hope you enjoy this work from my first collection Pathways! Just click the link above!
Also take a look at Wilde’s ghost dancers in his poem The Harlot’s House!
