'"La Sylphide" and Original Works'

Reprints information


'"La Sylphide" and Original Works' was performed by the Blue Heron Dance Company at the Vashon High School Theater, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, May 7-8-9, 2004

I took over 900 digital still photographs at all three performances, of every dance number and of "La Sylphide" itself.

I've put up the best of my photographs linked off of this web page. The performances are shown, below, in the order they were presented in the program.

I am pleased to offer photo-quality reprints of the pictures shown here.

The performances by all the dancers were absolutely stunning!

"La Sylphide"

Photographer's note: I ended up with over 500 photos of Acts 1 and 2, covering all three performances. At first I attempted to edit those down to one series of photos to represent the best of all three performances but finally gave up.

Rather than depicting a narrative of "La Sylphide" as a story, I decided that I wanted to display my photography of the three performances that took place at the Vashon High School theater, over all three days. What follows is a lot of photos, but I think it best represents the choreography, dancing, and acting of all the performers. Each performance was a little different, and I captured different moments within each. Enjoy!
