Devizes Melting Pot

“Protection. Conservation. Restriction. Deep ecology. Give me deep technology any day. They don't scare me. "I'm damned if I'll crawl, my children's children crawl on the earth in some kind a fuckin' harmony with the environment. Yeah, till the next ice age or the next asteroid impact." (Moh Kohn, The Star Fraction)/ "This is the fight between God and the Devil. If His Grace is with God, he must join me, if he is for the Devil he must fight me. There is no third way" King Gustavus Adolphus

Midweek Ballet Blogging

Monica Mason

When she was 20 years old she was picked by the great choreographer Sir Kenneth MacMillian to star as 'The Chosen One' in his version of 'The Rite of Spring', in a wonderful example of coming full circle, she is coaching 20 year old Royal Ballet Artist Claudia Dean who has been selected to star as 'The Chosen One' in a revival of it this season. 

A wonderful video clip from the Royal Opera House about it below

And a clip about Stravinsky's 'The Rite of Spring'
