Every artist who has collaborated with BalletCollective has found the process extremely enriching. We’re proud to introduce two fantastic artists into the collective for this piece: a duet to last approximately 9 minutes that explores a series of three images by Israeli photographer Dafy Hagai with a new score by Now Ensemble artistic director Mark Dancigers.
Over the past few years, Troy Schumacher has choreographed two short duets in BalletCollective works for Taylor Stanley and David Prottas, and has been planning this extended pas de deux for the two of them for quite some time, which explores two people experiencing a homecoming after a time apart from one another.
