Here’s how we helped Jakop with visuals for his 2020’s theater show ‘Syzygy’.

Jakop's
Challenge

Most often, advertising for a show needs to be communicated to magazines and theaters ahead of the theater season for programming. While there is only an inkling of what Jakop wants to bring to the stage, we need to visualize what it should communicate. This means creating images based on nothing more than a rudimentary idea.

The idea
for the show

We knew two things; the title: SYZYGY – the cosmic phenomenon where sun, earth and moon are in perfect alignment – and the subject: The beauty of the human body – both simple yet intricately complex.

for the show

The
concept

We tackled Jakop’s input by asking ourselves questions: What is beauty? When do we find alignment? How can something be simple yet complex? We answered these questions by lining up three ‘heavenly’ bodies and creating a fourth.

Behind
the scenes

After explaining our ideas to Jakop and supporting them with initial drawings we set out to do the shoot with the actors and layer them afterwards in Photoshop.

The
Team

For this shoot we worked again (see also the case of ‘Le Bal’) with photographer Leon Hendrickx and hair & makeup artist Nienke Algra. The cast consists of Çigdem Polat, Gwen Langenberg en Merel Severs.
