This Victorian Film Will Make You Feel Like On Florence And The Machine Concert

This month I saw a concert of [easyazon_link identifier=”B00TKTJWEM” locale=”US” tag=”dailyartdaily-20″]Florence and the Machine[/easyazon_link]. Of course it was awesome. The band played one of it’s classics – [easyazon_link identifier=”B002F6HRYY” locale=”US” tag=”dailyartdaily-20″]Rabbit Heart[/easyazon_link] (Raise It Up). It looked like this:

It reminded me of this dancer from 1898:

This woman performs a dance inspired by George du Maurier’s character Trilby, in an early modern dance style reminiscent of [easyazon_link identifier=”0871403188″ locale=”US” tag=”dailyartdaily-20″]Isadora Duncan[/easyazon_link]. She dances barefoot without stockings and is dressed in a long, flowing gown bound across the bosom in Grecian style, with inside fringe and a draped cape hooked to her wrist. She also wears what appears to be a garland headpiece. Holding her gown with one hand throughout, the dancer performs a series of kicks and turns with leg kicks front and back, rocking, and round de jambe. Well, times may change but the way that people dance don’t  🙂
