My last photo project of 2018 was to photograph a theatre premier by my good and very talented friend Maria Rakotonarivo - "La passion. Passion. Страсть".
When it is about theatre I am not easy to impress, but Maria and her actresses have exceeded all my expectations. It was a strong and emotional performance I truly enjoyed to photograph!
Maria is a professional theatre director, who is working with not professional actors, creating an absolutely breathtaking artwork. She is also organizing regular workshops to help people to own their audience and say goodbye to the fear of public speaking, to become more sensitive to their own emotions and be able to express them through movement and dance. She is also giving Saturday theatre classes for children and it is absolutely amazing to see how she teaches them to build a team and work together.
I hope that there will be more performances of "La Passion" in 2019!
If you are not familiar with Maria's work please follow her. She is doing amazing things right here in Geneva!
