Welcome to the 11th year of Living Statues! This is an annual family-friendly event that offers a unique and inspirational environment within which the public is invited to sketch, photograph, paint, or otherwise immortalize a group of talented Ballet Wichita dancers. The dancers perform a series of short interpretive tableaux throughout the evening, coordinated by a soundtrack composed specifically for the event by a local musician: this year we're very happy to welcome back Georgia Andersen, the composer of some of our most memorable Living Statues events over the years.
This year, we're shaking it up a bit...not only painting the dancers, but painting ON the dancers! From 7-8pm, nine fabulous Wichita artists will create their own works of art on nine dancers wearing white unitards, then those dancers will pose from 8-10. A bigbig thanks to the following for sharing their unique skills with us:
The audience is welcome to bring their own drawing materials, but we will also have paper and various drawing implements available courtesy of Lawrence Photo.
