Our very first impression of live performance and cinema can make a big impression. We might not know it at the time but it may have opened our eyes to wider worlds, sowed the seed of a future ambition or be the beginning of a lifelong love of arts and creativity.
It is interesting that, although recent performances can make a tremendous impact on you at the time, you fairly rapidly forget the detail of the performances; whereas very early memories from your childhood remain imprinted on your mind for 70+ years.
When I was about seven my parents took me to see The Cruel Sea with Jack Hawkins. I got so scared by the ships being torpedoed. I can still remember the thrill and excitement of the atmosphere inside the cinema!
Every Christmas my school travelled from the Kyle of Lochalsh to Eden Court to see the panto. We were all so excited. I loved how bright and bold and colourful the show was. One year it was my birthday and I got to go on stage with some other children and sing What Shall we do With the Drunken Sailor. I was so shy I think I mumbled but I’ll never forget it!
Seeing Rambert for the first time was amazing. My mum took me. I didn’t always get what the dances were about but the emotion and physical strength and flexibility of the dancers was incredible. It made me want to dance.
I took my mother to see my favourite ballet La Bayadere. Her wonder at the movement of the dancers was incredible. We both had tears pouring down our faces!
