About 'Mist'

Mist is a multidisciplinary dance film created by the Franco-Belgian choreographer Damien Jalet (1976) and filmed by Rahi Rezvani, inspired by the phenomenon of fog banks that are often associated with the Netherlands. The presence of wind and sea and the fact that a third of the Netherlands is below sea level served as some of the main sources of inspiration for the Jalet.

Mist is part of a three project collaboration between Jalet and Japanese visual artist Kohei Nawa, following their critically acclaimed pieces VESSEL and PLANET [wanderer]. The work explores the ephemeral space between reality and mirage, and a physicality that recalls the dynamics of evaporating, condensing and falling water. For this creation, Jalet is also collaborating with choreographer Aimilios Arapoglou, composer Fennesz, lighting designer Urs Schonebaum, costume designer Sruli Recht and photographer and videographer Rahi Rezvani.

After assistant directorships at the Grand Théâtre de Genève, Lincoln Center New York and the Münchner Kammerspiele, he began working as a lighting designer for opera, theatre, dance, art installations and performances in 2000.

Sruli Recht is a designer and artist. He was born in Jerusalem, Israel and holds Australian and Icelandic citizenship. Recht studied Fashion Design at RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia but left for London in 2005 where he worked with British designer Alexander McQueen. Recht’s work is considered to be innovative in its use of indigenous, new and unconventional materials and technologies though also seen by many to be controversial due to the use of materials such as minke whale foreskin, spider silk, seal and human skin. Although he is known mostly as a fashion designer, some garments and show pieces from his seasonal collections are seen to blur the relationships between art, design and fashion.
