The 4th year students of the SNDO - School for New Dance Development graduate by creating two works next to writing a thesis and completing their internship. Public programs take place in venues outside the school providing the students with professional working conditions and the artistic context.
For this final festival in June the SNDO students collaborated with Clara Pasteau and Orin Bristow, graduates from the Graphic Design department Gerrit Rietveld Academie. Students of both educations received an applied design assignment to work together in developing visibility material for the graduation festival. The poster and visual campaign are part of this trajectory.

The SNDO—School for New Dance Development (School voor Nieuwe Dansontwikkeling in Dutch)—offers a full time four-year professional education course leading to a bachelor's degree in Art – Choreography. The school was founded in 1975 as an attempt to find new directions for dance next to the existing forms and styles that dominated the field. After forty years, the SNDO remains inquisitive, open minded, and in the foreground of progressive developments in the fields of dance and performance. In the curriculum, the school establishes the conditions from which the creativity of the student can emerge. Reflection on the specific qualities of dance and performance as art forms is developed, and awareness of the body and the artistic implications of working with it take precedence.
