Summation. Paris 1996. I was sat on the roof of the Opera Garnier whilst dancing there with NDT1.... crazy to realise that 23 years later I’m up there again... a legal alien immigrant foreigner anti-Brexiteer, next to the same studio. So much has happened.... Immeasurable emotions and moments, and yet hardly anything has barely even shifted in the bigger picture of time bar my wrinkles. This time I’m here with #solleon to revisit our ballets #speakforyourself and #sleightofhand with @balletoperadeparis in April. What a building! One of my favourite theatres in the world. Absolutely loving the chance to be full time 100% in the studio busting my gut with the hungry and hardworking dancers of the company. Now though I’m home in Den Haag to be with the exceptional beauties of NDT1 and their magnificent triptych of works from @sharoneyaldance @crystal_pite @marnevanopstal & @immeld in our latest evening “Second Nature”... Forever in awe of what we can achieve together and deeply grateful to be right where I am. Light all around us. Photos: 1. Paris 1996 2. Same place 2019. 3. The fabulous inspirational wooden costume atelier gallery in Opera Garnier. 4. Fooling around with our team members @lou_motion & @rogervanderpoel post dinner and a few flutes de champagne... 5. Last but not least @johaninger #jeancristophemaillot & #yourstruly drooling over the magnificent sword which @jirikylian so rightly was decorated with by the Palais des Beaux Arts... like three Smeagels, wishing it was mines seeing as we founds it my precious...!!!
