When i was very young about three years old my grandmother insisted that i have ballet lessons. When i was fifteen my sister began taking me to the ballet in New York, In the end my sister did not fare well in the 1950’s and as a result committed suicide in the 1970’s.
I have her book Diaghilev and the Ballet Russe .Have read it and has inspired some of my work. Interestingly enough,Eleanor Antin was also inspired by Diaghilev in her work. She is the same age as my sister would be if she had lived.
