After the fresh hope vividly portrayed in ‘AWAKENING’ we follow it up by another quality in today’s harsh climate.
‘YU' stands for COURAGE and this is what our two Japanse male dancers Rin Isomura & Akihito Shimogata perfectly illustrate in this second JBA short film, entirely put together by the exact same team behind ‘AWAKENING’.
AWAKENING is JBA’s very first short film - a fusion of dance & nature!
The film was captured in the ‘Zevenbergenbos’ in Ranst and has conceptually and visually been brought to the screen by Alain Honorez, JBA’s artistic leader.
For the occasion JBA collaborated with Wolf Hoeyberghs, junior dancer with the Zürich ballett, who composed a magical piece of music. Wolf, on his turn, invited Martina Renau (Zürich junior dancer) to give color to the music’s main instrument; the cello. The choreography is from the hand of our very own ballet mistress Altea Nuñez.
May the pictures shine a little light on these dark days and awaken the wish to see our young dancers performing live once more!
