For the work “Bacon”, Nanine drew inspiration from Francis Bacon, the great twentieth-century figurative painter. Bacon is an associative journey, made up of emotions that evoke Bacon’s paintings. The selection committee of the Dutch Dance Festival 2005 selected Bacon as one of the highlights of the season.
“Nanine Linning’s Bacon is a stubborn beauty that stays with you for a long time. The result – an extremely intense production – is extraordinary”. “Utrechts Nieuwsblad”
