Have A Devilish New Year’s Eve! #WordyMonday

I created a photographic interpretation of the word ‘devilish’ in response to a #WordyMonday suggestion by the multi-talented Milo Miles. Selected from my images of a performance of Tony Adigun’s Illegal Dance at Stratford Circus in 2011, my intention was to show a potentially devilish dance relationship.

The story portrayed by Illegal Dance is of a devilish dystopia where self expression through dance fusion is illegal and the production itself must have been devilishly difficult for those responsible for the set (while simple, the atmosphere relied on costumes and state-of-the-art projections) and the dancers (there were performers in the audience, under the seating and on the naked stage so moving around must have been challenging and audience interaction was key). I’d like to say getting this image right was devilishly difficult too, but in reality it was just time consuming. This image is bigger than normal because it’s New Years Eve.

Next year’s #WordyMonday word, also contributed by Milo Miles is ‘slithering’.
