Rift, my dance piece for New Choreography 2014
I received this amazing opportunity to create for New Choreography, but only being at Rambert for one year I was unsure. However, because of my love for choreographing, I decided to go for it! I couldn’t pass on this great opportunity to grow and develop as an artist, and with Rambert’s talented dancers to work with I would’ve been silly not to.
Below are a few photos of the choreographic process, and also a couple of videos: Researching movements – a video I filmed of family, friends and colleagues, but not saying why; I then watched their body language without sound or faces / Inspiration – the inspiration for my piece originated with this YouTube clip; an advert from my native Denmark that illustrated the fatal consequences of not wearing a seatbelt whilst driving.
