In October of 2017, I enjoyed an interdisciplinary performance of dance by Company Noi and photography by the late Marc Lagrange in an archeological setting of antiquities in The Gallo-Roman Museum in Tongeren, Belgium. Impressed by the performance, I connected with Company Noi and one thing led to another.

My love for dance goes back as far as I can remember. The end result, the actual performances are the cherries on the cake. But there is so much beauty in observing the rehearsals, capturing this rawness, the bodies, their strength, the effort, the perseverance. This photographic project is shot during rehearsals in Antwerp.
