Yesterday, I came across this touching audition of Attraction, a Hungarian shadow theatre dance group. The group eventually won Season 7 of Britain’s Got Talent reality TV show.
Their performance may be based on a simple story but the story of love, war and losing a loved one is something very close to people’s hearts. Together with the interesting use of shadows formed with their bodies, the flawless coordination of the dance members and a beautiful track of “Read All About It” by Emeli Sande, everything just falls nicely in place and tugs at one’s heart strings.
After watching the performance, I was so inspired that I have this image of an angel who is tired and is resting on the ground with her knees crouched to her chest. I have no idea why but I suppose the angel is tired from maybe all the fighting by humans. It was midnight when I watched the video but I have this urge that I just need to draw it out. I completed the drawing and even the colouring in about 1 hour while listening to the music of “Read All About It” again and again. Today, I spent another hour tidying up the drawing, listening to what else, the same track of course! I must have played the song for like 50 times now.
