Baiba Rozenfelde is a Latvian choreographer, working with dancers from different backgrounds and abilities. She likes combining contemporary dance with other art forms – theatre, circus and film. At the moment she is a Master’s program student at Shanghai Theatre Academy.
Baiba is collaborating with Pauan Soares on Vanitas: The Butterfly.
This short piece uses the aesthetics of vanitas to reflect on the relations of life, death, transience, time, dance and movement, drawing inspiration from the short life cycle of a butterfly – from the stage of a caterpillar until its death.
