Warpaint is my inspiration this week.

My lovely friend, Adria Lang, introduced some music to me. I really love how this video is shot with the lighting and fans. I love love love the song. I enjoy passionate rock and roll women!

A unique and extremely moving film

This movie left me speechless the first time I saw it. Alejandro Jodorowsky is a genius. If you enjoy surrealism, than you must see this film. This is my shared inspiration for the weekend! Check out the trailer here.

A heartbreaking Shared Inspiration for tonight

Turn off the television, turn off all the lights, and step away from the computer after you pressed play.

It’s good to cry.


Shared Inspiration Number Two & Show Update

Sometimes, I like to enter in random words in Google looking for new ideas, and I found this picture of this stunning dress. Would anyone like to help me make this? 🙂

This Wednesday, I will be at Trip Bar for the Fetish themed burlesque night. Starts at 10 PM. Check out the events page for the link to the invite.

Shared Inspiration

A few things…

I am still doing The Dark Side of the Moon play every Sunday until the end of April. 9:30PM for the rest of March and at 8PM for the month of April. It is at the Next Stage Theater in Hollywood, CA. www.oliviabellafontaine.com/events

So, many new show coming up so stay tuned on the blog posts, and my events calendar!

I have decided to start posting inspiration of the day or week, whether it be a song, a video, a person, a photo, a costume design, anything! Inspiration is very important to keep flowing in the creative mind.

My first inspiration post is this beautiful, meaningful song by Florence + the Machine. The lyrics are beautiful. I feel a modern theatrical dance for this would be so perfect.

Between Two Lungs – Florence + the Machine

“Between two lungs it was released
The breath that captured me
The sigh that blew me forward

Cause it was trapped
Trapped between two lungs
It was trapped between two lungs
It was trapped between two lungs

And my running feet could fly
Each breath screaming
“We are all too young to die”

Between two lungs it was released
The breath that passed from you to me
That flew between us as we slept
That slipped from your mouth into mine
It crept between two lungs
It was released
The breath that passed from you to me
That flew between us as we slept
That slipped from your mouth into mine
It crept

Cause it was trapped
Tapped between two lungs
It was trapped between two lungs

Now all the days of begging
The days of theft
No more gasping for a breath
The air has filled me head-to-toe
And I can see the ground far below
I have this breath
And I hold it tight
And I keep it in my chest
With all my mgiht
I pray to God this breath will last
As it pushes past my lips
As I…

Between two lungs it was released
The breath that passed from you to me”
