Poetry In Motion

Aug 18, 2007
Some ballerina's are so graceful that their movements are considered to be poetry in motion. The slight dip at the waist is a silent communiqu to another that they recognize their presence and are giving them a greeting. The passionate embraces that meld their bodies so tightly together give evidence to a passion that is bridled and unspoken. Ballet is poetry in perpetual motion that tells a story.

The poetic verses of a ballet might have been conveyed in a screenplay or taken from works of a master poet who created the poetic masterpiece centuries before. The words in the ballet are carefully choreographed movements instead of spoken word, where the tale emerges through the various acts. During each Act, the Director will use the motion of body and associated props to convey the message that was in the original poetry verses, screenplay, or novel.

Typically, many ballets are based on tragedies because people do not often find it necessary to express their joys in verses. The tragedies of lost loves or lost lives will typically lead to other people taking their own life. The poetry expressed on the stage will be far less poignant than the actual emotion that the writer felt when they comprised their words of love or emotion on paper so long ago.

Somebody must have been deeply touched by the poetry because they put the production of a screenplay into motion after they read it. They felt that the words were worthy enough to be expressed through the fluid movements of a ballet company up on stage. The coloring of the outfits and the dramatic stage props are clear evidence of the level of emotion that was derived from the poetic pieces of poetry that have probably been reread several times.

Every actor will place their own individual accent on the ballet performance. Their stance, their authentic appearance and the delivery of the poetic verses through bodily expressions will make a lasting impression on everyone in the audience. Some ballet performances are so breathtakingly beautiful and moving, that those women in the audience will have tears in their eyes before the last curtain drops.

This robust round of emotion is intensified by the orchestra throughout the performance of a ballet or play. Every poetic motion conveyed on stage is accented with the percussion instruments and most certainly the renderings of a sad violin or two. The dramas of the poetic illustrations on the stage are intensified by the resounding beat of drums and horns that cumulate into the background when a resounding round of applause is heard from the audience and everyone rises in a standing ovation.
