Photographing dance is always a challenge because it is about captivating a movement
in one fix moment.
One image alone has to visualise where the body comes from and where it will go.
Then again, dance performances are meant to be seen.
They are often prepared in a highly visual way, turning into one direction, the one of the audience.
It is hence a situation that provides the photographer with much visual material.
Within rehearsals not all those visual keys are given yet, the still rough background often holds
some sort of poetic in the ordinary and uncontrolled.
The whole concentration lies in the bodies themselves.
Watching the Do-Theatre working I was fascinated by the presence of each movement.
The way the bodies were connected to the ground, the way they seemed to move the air,
the way they touched everything in their surrounding.
There was something highly sensitive that I tried to capture.
