Photo project Second Stage, which is addressing the career change of former Dutch dancers will be exhibited in the Fotoacademie in Amsterdam.

Second Stage is photography project about new jobs of former dancers who have ended their dance career in the Netherlands. In the photos their instrument is central. Their body could at some point no longer meet the high physical and technical demands. After the dancing career they use their body in a very different way but continue to reflect their former career through their posture and graceful movement. Second Stage reveals how former dancers have experienced the transition on their journey of becoming somebody else.
