Striking images from London photographer Robin Conway’s evolving project C02 ballet showcase the authentic beauty of dance and movement in a weightless, underwater environment.
This new exhibition, hosted by Outsider Tart, captures unique choreography which is impossible to perform on land, highlighting the raw technique and determination of the dancers to overcome an alien environment, removing any suggestion of false pretence to show the true, raw artistic nature of each performer.
Each photograph combines the collaborative creativeness of the dancers with the colour of the make-up artist’s vision and the photographer’s own story and expression.
The performers in C02 Ballet are:
Georgie Rose of the Norwegian National Ballet
Lauretta Summers of Bayerisches Staatsballett
Iana Salenko of the Berlin State Ballet
Joshua McSherry-Gray of the English National Ballet
Romany Pajdak of The Royal Ballet
Tzu-Chao Chou of the Birmingham Royal Ballet
Ksenia Ovsyanick of Staatsballett Berlin
Daniel Proietto of Ballet Santiago de Chile, Ballet del Teatro Argentino, Contemporary Ballet of Teatro San Martin, Carte, Carte Blanche, Guest Artist of the Norwegian National Ballet
Conway’s photographs are available for purchase (£360 for each frame).
