Ballerina: Kallanda Caetana


Since its inception, ballet concentrated on making the dancer look polished and perfect. During a performance, a ballerina stays in character, and is completely focused until the final outstretched movement.

My interests lie in what is on the other side of the performance, when the dancer is not so processed, and can be more natural. This series takes a look at the personality of the dancer, outside of a theater, with less attention to perfection.

The movements captured are when the dancer is sometimes in a resting position, or when she has paused for a breath during a transition to another movement.

She is still very elegant in her movements but is dancing for herself, inside her own world.
