Another art form

Check out this link:

for a look into artistic talent in the form of dance and choreography. My energetic, artistic, handsome, sweet, and very talented nephew Ian is in Sydney, Australia working with Azure Barton (same adjectives apply except instead of handsome, substitute lovely) on this ballet, put together, FROM SCRATCH, in only 6 weeks. To make a 2 dimensional piece of art in that time seems reasonable, but 3 dimensional or more (things MOVE, no one stays STILL, it all needs to be DIRECTED) seems unbelievable. 'Course this is a new concept to me so of course it seems unwieldy. The clip shows stills of the dance as well as Azure speaking about her creation process. If you're in the area....
