Ex Nihilo- The Show
Ex Nihilo are 4 dancers from Marseille. They are amazing. They perform outdoors, in the streets...
Their dance requires lots of physical strenght cause they bounce off of walls and pavement all the time. There is so much improvisation going on and yet they're perfectly coordinated.
The show's entitled "Calle Obrapia #4" created at the Cuidad en Movimiento Festival in Havana in 2003.

The situations look like stills from a film; movements are interrupted, their choreographic sequence is disturbed, and the detail seems to have been chosen arbitrarily despite a stage like setting.
I keep coming back to what I think is the best gallery on pbase. This pictures show that photograpy is not exhausted. Something is moving in front of reality and you have captured it. "The meaning as distinct from the image, is the part that is not always seen by everybody." Earlier, I called you the fifth dancer and indeed you are, but you are also a lot more...
I've seen and photographed this show already a few times. Your photos are very good.
I am impressed by showing the lot of movements and energy on your photos which are in the show. Your photos give a very good impression.
Photographing with some risk of unsharp images.... but if they are good; then they are excellent.

Great gallery Peter, congratulations.
I wish I were there with my camera, great shots!
That particular day, Ex Nihilo were not four dancers. They were five! Peter, you were the fifth... and so the performance is going on and on and on... This is a breath taking series... Thank You ! R.V. Bulck
Terrific photoes. I would have loved to have seen their performance. They sound very original, the manner in which they use the sidewalk and the sides of buildings!
THis was a treat! It reminds of Barcelona, in the plaza near the Gothic quarter they dance almost every afternoon. I love the color and closness you feel with these subjects. Thank you for sharing these.
I am looking at buying the 135F2L lens, and I started browsing pbase for all the galleries with this lens.
Your gallery is the best by far! Great work!
081,086,054 are my favourites.
Absolutely marvellous Peter. I've posted this before having gone through all the individual photographs; I know I'm going to enjoy it. Thanks.
