I’ve had the pleasure of once more to work with the incredibly talented choreographer Jan Martens. From the very first moment I saw a piece created by him, I was blown away and could see that he is a raw talent and at such a young age already has developed a dance language of his own. From that moment on I try to see everything he makes and I’ve been fortunate enough that Jan allows me to photograph and film during rehearsals, to document his wonderful journey in creating pieces. 

In the past few days, during the wonderful Theaterfestival, I’ve worked with him and the 8 amazing dancers from the ‘The Dog Days are over’ production and the sweaty result will be online soon.

Building a mobile studio in one of the dressing rooms was not possible without the help and material of friend and fellow photographer Walter Saenen, who in this way helped me create the images I had in my head when I saw this show in sneak preview quite a while ago. Working in a studio setting was very new as well and it’s been wonderful to test this out, create images and learn.
