Up & Coming Choreographers x NDT & Korzo (2019)

Dance, Photography

For the 2019 edition of Up & Coming Choreographers (produced by NDT), choreographers Juliano Nunes, Ihsan Rustem and Dimo Milev get a chance to make new creations. In a short time span of several weeks, the choreographers are challenged to work on a ballet entirely according to their own interpretation: from choreography, to scenery, costumes and light. This is done under professional supervision and in the intimate setting of the Korzo theater in The Hague.

On this occasion, I was assigned to photograph the rehearsals of the three choreographers and create an exhibition on the theme of ‘Extremes’ in the foyer of Korzo Theatre.

I would like to sincerely thank Lucie de Haas, Anne de Roth, and Johanna Korgel for their support and guidance.
