Psychomachia at Origen Festival Cultural

In July Dustin Klein and his regular collaborators, Simon Lovermann and myself, were invited back to Origen Festival Cultural for the fourth year in a row. Always a very special project and experience, this year we felt even more privileged to be a part of the festival due to the current pandemic. Giovanni Netzer, Flavia Kistler and all involved at Origen Festival worked around the clock making sure this summers festival (with eight dance premieres!) could still take place whilst ensuring the health and safety of audiences, staff, artists and local residents.

 

We were very lucky to have film makers Maxim Derevianko and Serena Perla following part of the creative process in Munich and the resulting performances in Riom and create two trailers – ‘Behind the Scenes’ and a ‘Performance trailer’.

Cancellations due to Covid-19

Unfortunately due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the closure of theatres worldwide, productions I have been working on have been cancelled or postponed. These include Andreas Heise’s ‘Schwanengesang’ at the Oper Graz and Dimo Kirilov Milev’s ‘Gegen den Strom’ with Theater St. Gallen.

I very much hope these productions will be rescheduled in the coming seasons, but until then here are a couple of previews of the costume sketches from these two productions!

Individuell trailer and costume development video

Last year I had a wonderful experience working with the choreographer Peter Leung and the dancers of the Bayerisches Junior Ballett München creating the costumes for ‘Individuell’.

As well as creating a trailer, the creative journey was filmed and documented, resulting in a backstage video series. Here is a short video tracing the costume development from making, fitting to final rehearsals and the trailer from the stage performances. To see the rest of the series click here!
