At the end of October I had the opportunity to come to Tokyo for a workshop. Last time I was in Japan was in 2007 when I went to Okinawa for a three week summer course at OIST, which was an amazing experience, so I was excited to be going back to Japan again. I landed on Saturday, and dropped of my luggage at the hotel before meeting up with Rio Morisawa that I know from her year at the Royal Swedish Ballet School in Stockholm. Together we headed out for an evening of dance photography on the streets of Tokyo.
Only a few days after we met up for the dance photoshoot Rio flew over to France to start working at Ballet de l’Opéra National de Bordeaux. Talk about timing that we managed to meet up in Tokyo. A big thank you to Rio for showing me around Tokyo and for a fun ballet photoshoot, and best of luck in Bordeaux!
