I was recommended to The DeNada Dance Theatre through the work I produced for the Birmingham Royal Ballet's Pointe Blank exhibition. They were exploring the option of working with an illustrator on the publicity materials for their latest dance production 'Ham and Passion'.
Inspired by Pedro Almodovar and Saul Bass film posters, we were looking at a vibrant colour palette and kitsch, striking imagery. Sadly it didn't work out with the backers looking to take a more traditional route using photography. A year on, and with the 'Ham and Passion' dance production in full swing I took the chance to realise the 'Ham and Passion' tour poster that never was.
