In Flagrante show dance title: BLINDFOLD (first performed Wellington St James Cabaret 2011)

Music Title: Dope Noir

Music Artist: Klaus Waldeck

 Choreography/narrative/theme:

Drawing on the moody melodic and unique vocal signature of Dope Noir, this piece mirrors Erte’s Spirit of Ecstasy, an enduring symbol of freedom and sensuality on the nose of every Rolls Royce. Danced with blindfold and strings attached to her lover, this work probes the boundaries between capture and freedom. A deeply sensual and elegant work that matches the spirit of the music perfectly.

Lighting: Amber warm gold wash from one side

Costume:

The main dancer wears a flesh G string,  a black, embossed leather blindfold, the supporting dancer holding the reins wears a see-through lace waistcoat..

Props: long black soft lycra reins.

Music Artist: Klaus Waldeck
