Unfreezing Siberia

Fraules girls know how to have fun
And make it hot 
Even in the core of Siberia

So glamorous
So fun
So energetic

Wish I was there!!

The most impressive and exquisite resume EVER

Stephen Galloway:movement consultant
As far as dance can lead
In the core of dance lies the aesthetic of movement
You can be a dancer without the Eyes
But if you have the Eyes you have then acquired a competence,
one of the most subtile delicate and exquisite:
A competence in movements' aesthetic

And where can this lead?
As far as Stephen Galloway is concerned:

  1. Where it all begun: He started classy by being principal at the Ballet Frankfurt in Germany (the Forsythe company) . He remained in the comany until 2004 and collaborated there as a performer and a choreographer with many leading companies. 
  2. A smooth yet brillant reconversion: In 2000, being known for his sartorial tastes, he became head costume designer and style coordinator for the company. Soon, his designs will be used in productions for other great international companies such as the Paris Opera 
  3. Two lifes:

    Van Lamsweerde and Matadin, who were also starting their careers in Germany at the time, took note of Galloway. The photographers invited him to join them on shoots to consult on the framing of the models' bodies. "We started out working with Stephen on developing a body language with the model Jessica Miller for a Calvin Klein ad campaign," van Lamsweerde says. "To this day, when other people work with [Miller], they say, 'Give me a Galloway.' We call him the third brain on shoots—he really understands what it takes to make a great fashion image, and he has an incredible ability to connect with whomever he meets." source
  4. The opportunity and the jump: Between his burgeoning career in the fashion world and his duties at the Ballet Frankfurt, Galloway had his hands full. But then came a call during rehearsal one day that he couldn't ignore: Would he be interested in coming to London to meet Mick Jagger ? Recommended to the Rolling Stones by a friend, he was eventually invited to help choreograph steps for Jagger to perform along to the music. "I set up a whole series of movements which I felt were, essentially, him doing him: a vocabulary of movement which he could then use at any point he wanted," says Galloway. "I took what was already Mick and turned it up 500 percent." For "Bridges to Babylon," their first tour together in 1996, he and Jagger holed up in a tiny dance studio in Amboise, France, freestyling as they listened to everything from Prince to the Egyptian singer Oum Kalsoum. "His enthusiasm was so infectious," Jagger emails. "I would always go out on stage and have fun when we were working together. We spent weeks trying out different moves. I hope some of his great style rubbed off on me."

Benjamin Millepied strikes again

Benjamin Millepied has just choreographed a short dance film for Maiyet

The Story of Daphnis & Chloé

Directed & Choreographed by Benjamin Millepied
Featuring an original score by London Grammar

Passage to Dawn is a series of choreographed video tableaux created in partnership with renowned choreographer and dancer Benjamin Millepied. Maiyet commissioned the films, along with an exclusive track, “Where I Belong,” by London Grammar, as a complement to its Spring/Summer 2015 collection.

Millepied’s resulting creation, a modern “symphonie choreographique,” is based on Daphnis and Chloé, a Greek pastoral love story thought to date to the 2nd century AD. The project was shot using a super slow motion video camera and filmed on location in Los Angeles with the participation of dancers from L.A. Dance Project. Costumes for the cast were specially created by Maiyet, based on pieces from the SS15 collection.

Beauty takes time

It's not about showing off
Not about competing
Not even about performing

It's about finding something
Deep deep inside
Far far away

Slowly moving
Where pleasure lies
Building Beauty

Building out of broken fall


Dance in substance
Movement's beauty to the core
Almost everything that I've understood from dance's technic so far is here

I want my body to be that precise
is my plan
(always a good one right?)

Imaginary Worlds

No choreography
That's not what you see
But a story being told
A world emerging by the strenght of their talents

This is what I wanna do:
I wanna reach that point 
Where my body and thoughts will be freely chasing one another
