Today I mostly love Trend Hunter

Trend Hunter

Today I have a lot of love for Trend Hunter who I often find are linking to me.

Where else would you find articles entitled Cougar Rom Coms and Counterculture Bibles rubbing shoulders with Origami Tea Bags and 21 Constricting Corsets?

Loving your work 🙂

And just for the record, I was actually wearing a pair of ‘jeggings’ today…

Culture Vulture: Matthew Bourne’s Dorian Grey @ Sadler’s Wells

Dorian Grey

I admit it. I like modern ballet.

I LOVE Matthew Bourne productions. His most recent is no exception.

Now showing at Sadler’s Wells, the classic tale of Dorian Grey has been given a modern day meedja twist, turning it into a social comment on vanity and the trappings of celebrity culture.

Many of the reviews have slated the music but, hey I liked it. With a small amount of classical thrown in for good measure (from Romeo & Juliet no less), the electro-tinged score is both unsettling and achingly cool and with a minimal, black and white, constantly revolving and changing set, a cast full of beautiful people and a storyline based on modelling, photography and modern culture tied into the fascination of celebrity.

I can sum up Dorian Grey as this; if the media industry made a ballet, this would be it.
