On Wednesday, June 16th, I photographed a wonderful preview performance by the Buglisi Dance Theatre, “Letters of Love on Ripped Paper”. It is a work in progress that will premiere in 2011 and was hosted by Ralph Pucci at his beautiful penthouse. The work is based on love letters through the ages; one is from Napoleon to Josephine:
Your image…the intoxicating pleasure…allow my senses no rest
My soul is broken with grief when I drink from your lips…your heart a scorching flame.
Till then, a thousand kisses, mio dolce amore, set my blood on fire…
