Damien Jalet - Les Médusés / Zikhr
Working with Jalet certainly helped pull incredible performances out of Johnson and her costars. After all, he has danced with the Paris Opera Ballet and Scottish Dance Theater, collaborated with famed performance artist Marina Abramovic and fashion designer Hussein Chalayan, and worked around the world from Tokyo to Antwerp.
In 2013, his otherworldly piece "Les Médusés" overtook the Louvre, making for a compelling performance piece that blended classical art and modern dance. It was that very creation that helped him land his job on Suspiria. In a recent interview with Vice alongside Suspiria director Luca Guadagnino, Jalet explained the "quite spooky" coincidence.
