BalletCollective’s first work using visual art as a source, All That We See stemmed from a series of meetings between Schumacher, Ludwig-Leone and Salle. After some discussion, it was decided that it would be interesting for Salle to create a painting and then deliver to the choreographer and composer a series of severely cropped images from the painting, with the two never to see the whole work until the ballet was completed. With these several images from the painting as a guide, Schumacher and Ludwig-Leone decided to base the work on a grouping of eight images. Exploring an array of activity in each image, the two focused not on tone and literal content but on structure, line and emotional response.
