big in turkey

Hurriyet

Today I found out that a photo of my partner and I rehearsing Orchis was published in a major Turkish newspaper.  This may seem extremely random while out of context, but what you don’t know is that the photographer whose work inspired Plotnikov’s newest ballet, A. Cemal Ekin, is of Turkish decent.  The newspaper ran an article about Mr. Ekin, his series of photos “Dance of the Orchids”, and how it prompted the visionary ballet that is Orchis.  Just thought I’d share, since I thought it was pretty awesome.  What do you think?

Now if only we could get a local newspaper to be so interested…
