Lou Hirshman

“Ballet of the Sun” – 1980

Here is a ballet of the surreal and a dance of questions. Why is the ballerina reaching at right angles in an avocado leotard and a crab shell tutu? Why is a zipper man growing from a green and laddered tree trunk trying to hold a pie-plated red sun? Why do clouds hang impossibly like swings from heaven? Why did Hirshman stir from sleep one morning in this dream?

Have your say
