In February 2018 I visited Cape Town, South Africa. During a location scout I stumbled upon this pier and imangined it during early morning light. So I came back early morning the next day and was amazed by the atmosphere. That’s when I got inspired to shoot a dance performance on this very spot. I looked on social media for modern ballet dancers and was lucky to find Nuske Tamryn, a capetownian, who, without meeting me, was happy to star in the video.
We set up a date and met for the first time and only time on a Sunday morning in complete darkness at this pier. We listened to 4 songs and decided on Bearcubs - Underwaterfall, because it matched the mood perfectly. Then we shot 6 takes in the dusk until the sun was up. Truly a one-of-a-time experience.
