Who We Are – Inside Ballett Theater Basel

This blog was started as a small collaboration between Interview en L’air and Ballett Theater Basel. Since then it has grown and has become a popular Basel blog (20Minutes Basel Magazine: https://www.20min.ch/schweiz/basel/story/Ballett-geht-auch-ganz-unverkrampft-23047131 ).  Its great to see this blog encouraging a fresh company spirit, while promoting the company and  quality dance in general. Not to mention supporting three young video makers dreams. And one young entrepreneur. This project combines dance, communications, and technology. My dream 🙂

We decided to bring in a guest video artist to make the video about the blog team!
