Another Life

In Another Life the dancer, architect and boy look back and ahead on their professional life. Fergus Riem Vis made this short movie commissioned by ODN. The choreography is from Fernando Troya. About the inevitable end of a dance career and how to move on to a new life whilst maintaining the fundament that the dancer built while dancing.

Rely on your fundament, you don’t have to change anything about that.

Transitioning into a new direction may be a challenging process, but all dancers in the clip show that thanks to their acquired skills they have been able to take it in their own hands.
