I had the pleasure of movement directing Royal Ballet dancers David Donnelly and Matthew Ball for Michael Stukan, an incredibly talented designer who is currently a Menswear Fashion student at Central Saint Martins in London.
His newly-released short film entitled “Peat” was shot last fall in Buckinghamshire.
We drew a lot of inspiration for the movement from Pina Bausch and Anjelin Preljocaj as well as from Kiki Smith’s artwork and sculptures, all of which also heavily influenced Michael’s creative process.
You can read more about the collection and Michael on his website.
