Marcus Baldemar and Steven Michel both graduated from P.A.R.T.S, Brussels, Belgium. The residency at MDT in June/July 2012, will be the continuation of a precedent working period at Dansens Hus. Influenced by tools of cinematography they chose the working title “Model”, referring to french cinematographer Robert Bresson.
“A model. Enclosed in his mysterious appearance. He has brought home to all of him that was outside. He is there, behind that forehead, those cheeks.” R.Bresson
During their time at MDT and with this collaboration, they are interested in researching on the contradictory use of cinematography as a choreographic and performative method.
