The Contradiction of Silence
Inspired by the calm, tranquil beauty of the forests, lakes and wide skies of their Swedish homeland, Bolon is proud to launch our new collection, ‘Silence’. Already known for our work with designers and architects such as Missoni, Paul Smith and Jean Nouvel, this launch features a creative collaboration of a different, yet equally exciting kind – with acclaimed choreographer Alexander Ekman. Famous for his modern interpretations of classic dance, his previous work includes projects with the Boston Ballet Company, Sydney Ballet Company. Alexander is currently working at Den Norske Opera & Ballett, on his version of A Swan Lake. This is his first full-length narrative ballet. The result of the collaboration between Bolon and Alexander is the groundbreaking short film ‘The Contradiction Of Silence’. A playful piece of art, filled with energy, joy and beauty, it sits at the conceptual centre of the new collection’s launch.
