Una notte spettacolare

On Saturday night at La Rondine Gallery in Ponte a Serraglio there was an evening of spectacular entertainment. Jake Cartwright was joined by his friends, Guy Dowsett and Henna Kaikula for a performance of original music and acrobatic brilliance. Jake and Guy provided the beautiful music and Henna amazed the audience with her charismatic contortion.

In the words of others, Henna ” has been called a graceful snakewoman and acrobat who can do anything with her body” and ” seems to be able to twist herself inside out in a playful defiance against the laws of nature.” I will add that she is also charming and engages with her audience delightfully.

I wish that she wasn’t so fast…..then I would have been able to get better photos of her performance.

The tiny gallery filled with people spilling out on to the street to see the performers. Everybody was delighted and we were all left wanting more.

I hope there are lots more evenings like this in Ponte a Serraglio.
