Dressing Doors

An invitation to document, an evening of behind the scenes and decidedly front-of-scene coverage. A mob of fit women, moving and whirling about under the guise of dance passion.

Throughout the evening I was in and out of the backstage area (admittedly more like a conference room), capturing the mess of thirty girls’ handbags and winter boots, makeup and tights. Piles of early-twenties glamour detritus, beautiful in its own way.

So it’s all captured here as if it were exclusive. An open door that’s closed to physical entry, a glimpse of forbidden backstage prep. The troupe in its environment.

Between Acts.
