"Ballet Cymni Gwent"
 
   This company are coming to my area for a one night performance of something called 'Giselle Connotation' choreographed by Darius James. Has anybody seen them; is it worth booking? They have a very clear little website on
http://www.welshballet.co.uk.

   Ballet Gwent usually get very good reviews. I've never seen them unforunately since they don't perform in Mid Wales for some reason. I've seen some work by Darius James for Diversions that I was fairly bored with, but hopefully this'll be better.

   I haven't seen the "Giselle Connotation" yet, but I have seen "Midsummer Nights Dream", "Twelfth Night" and "As You Like It". I liked the first two very much; quite brave to do Shakespeare as a ballet. I found "As You Like It" a bit hard to follow as the story doesn't translate very well into visuals. Maybe 'cus I'm not that familiar with Bill's play. Two lines from my diary "The wrestling scene was probably the best. There was some nice group pieces; the solos and pdds got a bit repetitive I felt." The dancers are quite young and put a lot of energy into the performances.
