Anna Pavlova dances The Dying Swan

I made 25 animations tonight from this performance. I’m going to share them in sets over the next couple of days. The Dying Swan is a piece of art that moves me every time I watch it & Anna’s original interpretation is the most wrenching. Her movements are fluttering & brave, she’s simultaneously graceful & broken – a gossamer ghost. We just discovered yesterday that our cat enjoys laying with his head near a speaker while this song plays. He closes his eyes, purrs, kneads the air contentedly & his ears twitch when the music swells. It fills my heart.
