DAY 3 – FLYING MONKEY’S Finale!
Today was the finale of ‘Echoes of Oz’, I hope whoever wanted to go and experience Bradford’s Magical weekend managed to.
Behind the scenes everything ran very smoothly for the makeup team despite our tutor not being there to oversee and coordinate the massive numbers of performers, and of course us. Instead she allocated her responsibilities to myself and Makala, whose also on my university course. I recommend you follow her blog! Together we managed to coordinate the team and manage all the performers so that we could complete the job effectively and make sure everyone communicated professionally and respectfully.
Even under the pressures regarding time and the quantity of both the Flying Monkeys and the Emerald Citizens we still managed to complete the makeup with plenty of time to spare before the performers call time.
The 1.30pm show was performed in the same location at the Mirror pool in Centenary Square, Bradford and all the performers similar to yesterday were from the local dance schools and clubs. Even though the performance was again, not as I expected, the costumes and makeup meant the performers really looked like they had stepped out of ‘Oz’.
Here are a few of the Flying Monkey’s in full costume and then close-ups of their makeup further below:
