Words from Ben below.
Can you share an insight into your collaboration with choreographer, Holly Blakey?
I knew Holly immediately understood my vision and we worked closely together to develop the style that would capture the emotion I wanted to convey. It was strange constructing a dance on the ground that would ultimately take place in the air and vertically. We both had to wrap our heads around this approach. There wasn’t an existing language to talk about this though, because we hadn’t done it before. I look forward to working diagonally next time.

“It’s a metaphor for liberation and reigniting human proximity and self-expression.”
