The Show is Over in KORZO

In 2001, photographer Tara Fallaux created the photo serie The Show is Over. Exhausted, relieved, energetic or worn out. Nobody usually gets to see how dancers leave the stage after a performance. Backstage, they fall into a kind of vacuum, the empty space that follows after the almost superhuman effort. The mind is still on stage and the adrenaline still rushes through the body. The dancer has not yet switched to the sober reality. Not only the dance, but also the dancer has been danced.

The serie was exhibited at Julidans and the CaDance Festival in 2001. Now, part of it is permanently shown at Korzo dance theater in The Hague.
