[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text text_lead=”yes”]

Pit Buehler about his artistic series dedicated to Don Quixote and made at the Bolshoi Theatre of Moscow:

These photos make part of the series “The ballet dancers of Don Quixote”.

Ballet as a technique, like other classical Baroque figurative arts, is known for it’s favored symmetry, it’s dynamic balance, and the at most harmony of the entire body.
The character of Don Quixote is part of a group of world famous dancers playing at the sold out Bolshoi Ballet Theater in Moscow. The shown photograph has been taken during the piece “Don Quixote”, originally called “The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quijote of La Mancha” – a Spanish novel by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, published in two volumes, in 1605 and 1615. Don Quixote is considered to be one of the most influential works of literature from the Spanish Golden Age and the entire Spanish literary canon.
The venerable „president lounge“ in the renowned Russian cultural institution was selected for the temporary studio to receive the dance icons directly from the stage between their sessions. As sometimes, to portray the stars, their disposability took only a few seconds, before they were called on stage again. The play regularly gaines standing ovation of the jubilant audience.
The pictures were taken with a digital Phase One IQ280 medium format camera.

Pit Buehler della sua serie artistica dedicata alla performance di Don Quixote al Teatro Bolshoi di Mosca:

Queste foto fanno parte della serie “Danzatori del Balletto Don Quixote”.

Ballet tecnicamente ha una struttura molto simmetrica e movimento sempre bilanciato come altri tipi d’arte classica di Baroque.

Il ritratto di Don Quixote dimostra il ballerino chi fa parte della famosa compagnia del Teatro Bolshoi di Mosca. La foto era fatta durante la popolarissima performance di “Don Quixote” basata su “L’ingegnoso Signor Don Quijote di La Mancha”, una  novella spagnola di Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra pubblicata in due parti,  1605 e 1615. Don Quixote è considerato di essere una delle opere più influenti della letteratura spagnola e in particolare dell’età dell’oro del paese.

Abbiamo usato l’onorabile  “President Lounge” del teatro di Bolshoi rinnovato e ristrutturato come il nostro studio temporaneo per fare foto dei ballerini immediatamente in pause tra le esibizioni sul palco durante lo spettacolo. A volte c’erano solo pochi istanti disponibili per scattare. Questa performance spesso riceve standing ovation  del suo pubblico esultante.

Per fare le foto una camera digitale Phase One IQ280  formato medio era usata.
