*La Sylphide – Still Life* is an investigation into what happens when two monumentally different art forms – ballet and photography – seek common ground within aesthetics and visual beauty. A deconstruction of a piece of golden romantic heritage with the aid of photographic technique.

You are invited to admire the magnificent result of the endeavours of artistic director Nikolaj Hübbe and photo artist Paul Wesolek in interpreting the famous romantic ballet classic *La Sylphide* by the grand old man of Danish ballet, August Bournonville (1805 – 1879).
