Where and how do we find inspiration, do our job and keep on dancing and moving forward during the coronacrisis? Various dance artists and employees will give their take on that in the coming weeks. This week: freelance filmmaker Paul Sixta, who has been making all trailers and video registrations for Dansateliers for many years.
What do you enjoy about working for Dansateliers?
‘At Dansateliers, people work with passion. Everyone goes to great lengths to put something down well. The research and development of dance artists is always central. That keeps things fresh and innovative.’
What else do you do, besides your work for Dansateliers?
‘I am a photographer and video artist. I also work regularly with dance artists on dance/video projects.’
What keeps you occupied during the coronacrisis?
‘For the time being, I still have my own work to edit. I am also making plans for what will come when we finally can get back to work. And I try to take some time to reflect on what is really important. And that are the small things in life.’
