shaolin monks & wooden crates

one of the projects i will be working on in the coming weeks is a new image & poster for the dutch national ballet, for the first time ever without dancers (hoorah!) but just using objects and abstract movement

i will be working together with talented dutch stills photographer bart oomes, we have yet to decide what the idea will be but the subject is a very inspiring one anyway: a new choreography by belgian/moroccan rising star ‘sidi larbi chekaoui’ plus another from young british choreographer ‘david dawson’

chekaoui regularly works with other inspiring people himself such as british artist ‘antony gormley’ for example, on his ballet ‘sutra’ where he trained a whole group of ‘shaolin monks’ to dance the piece, sounds hard to imagine? here’s a preview of his amazing work below… i’m really looking forward to working on this project…
