Because of the measures taken against the coronavirus, it has been quiet on the streets and in public buildings for a long period of time.

As a dancer, I really felt the need to create something. I wanted to capture the time image of this period by means of a dance film. “Empty” is a project in which the disciplines of dance, music, architecture and film have been merged. It’s a twelve-part film series of all different places that are deserted at the moment.

Besides famous places like Amsterdam Central Station, Rijksmuseum, the Red Light District and the Leidseplein, I also thought it was important to film in general places like a church, a classroom and a parking garage to dance. I hope that “Empty” can provide distraction and entertainment in this crazy period.
