Additional Notes:
Modern Female Dancer Spotlight Award nominated and Circle Award's Outstanding Performance dancer, Malgorzata Dzierzon (Gosia), performs in 'Awakenings', a theatrical rollercoaster of emotions, based upon true life stories and inspired by Dr Oliver Sacks' book of the same name. Her characteristic pose depicts the joy of feeling alive again after many years in a coma and being able to move again. A gracefully passionate performance which is arousing, stirring and above all Emotional Awakening indeed... Painted entirely with a knife. A high level of contrast is provided and the colours made extremely rich, bold and lustrous, thus creating a very contemporary feel overall. It's a large, very dramatic, passionate, emotive, moody and atmospheric figurative dance painting that would not look out of place as a feature in a lounge, study, office, music room, conservatory, bedroom, hall, landing or similar room and be a focal point to be proud of.
