Musicians looking for choreography

T I M E is an international project by Million Bells & Friends, that we are finishing these days. At this moment we have a pré-mix available (with four out of nine singers), while others are recording their parts as we speak. It will be a ten minute epic song, full of variation, about the fact that time, in the end, always wins.

We would like to extend the musical project with another art, and maybe a ballet-choreography would be an interesting addition...

Contact me if you're interested, and I will mail you the current mix: milo.beyls[at]icloud.com

Dance on!
