Backstage to Frontstage
On stage graceful, spectacular or elegant – but what does it look like behind the scenes? The pictures were taken backstage at various dance performances, from Balinese theatre to the Beijing Opera, from Balinese and Javanese dance to European children’s ballet. I deliberately decided not to look at the big stage, but to photograph in the rehearsal and dressing room. In a way, this turned the backstage into a front stage. In some cases, I was able to experience the dance myself took some lesson and got into the costume.
