During his Paris years 1920-25, GAN, via the Swedish Ballet, came in direct contact with the European dance and music avant-garde of the time. He saw the revival of Igor Stravinsky's ground breaking ballet The Rite of Spring at Théâtre des Champs Elysées and witnessed the premiere of Eric Saties Parade with costumes and decor by Picasso. GAN was exited, and sketching on costume and set design for several ballet projects were to follow. Only one of them, Krelantems and Eldeling, scored by the Swedish composer Moses Pergament, would become reality. The work was premiered at the Royal Opera in Stockholm in 1928.


Ninety years later, we reconnect GAN with the contemporary dance scene. In this Pas de deux, choreographer Ingrid Rosborg and dancer Camille Marchadour interpret GAN's visual world against the backdrop of our own troubled times. GAN is a work about meeting the future.


In this project I have the privilege to collaborate with a hand picked ensemble. Together we are now working towards the premiere which is planned to 2021.
