Street Fighters

A dance video captured on the streets of Sofia town, the capital city of Bulgaria, where these talented dancers live,work and create.

I documented some inspiring moves out of their rather tough life – in between struggling with daily routines, armed with their faith and their talent. Still doing what they love and happy with what they have.

URBS LUX

‘Urbs Lux’ is a contemporary dance video art; a creation conceived in April 2015 as a collaborative project between choreographer Svetlin Velchev, sound designer Stanislav Genadiev – Genda and the street apparel-clothing brand ‘Cognition Limited’. Performing it are Kim Hoogterp and Svetlin Velchev

An abstract cityscape of lights, buildings, locations and shadows. Literally translated from Latin ‘Urbs Lux’ means ‘City Light’ and is inspired by the surrounding urban environment at night.

In the video a dancing couple, representing the street culture, is going through transformation by exploring different whereabouts. The captured city spirit amplifies freedom, choice and longing for other places, displaying attraction or distance between us as individuals.
